French at St Richard's 

Our Modern Foreign Language in Key Stage 2 is French


During Key Stage 2 pupils learn will have weekly timetabled French lessons, as well as being encouraged to visit the French section of our school library and take home a French reading book from time to time.

 All children will be able to develop and enhance their ability to:

  • Understand and respond to both the spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources;
  • Speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say;
  • Children will be able to participate in conversations, discussions, asking and responding to questions whilst continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation;

Experience writing at varying lengths, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.
