Modern Foreign Languages


Learning a foreign language is part of the primary National Curriculum and is a requirement for all children within key stage 2 (KS2). Sir Henry Fermor CofE Primary School has adopted a whole school approach to the teaching of French to all KS2 pupils.

Our aim is to develop the confidence and competence of each child in the foreign language they are learning. Our goal is for them to be passionate, curious and confident about their own foreign language learning abilities when they finish the primary school phase of their education.


We will help them develop and demonstrate substantial progress in the 5 key language skills necessary for learning French:

· Speaking

· Listening

· Reading

· Writing

· Grammar



We aim to ensure that pupils of all abilities develop solid foundations in these key language learning skills - properly preparing them for the next stage of their language learning journey. These skills will develop children’s ability to understand what they hear and read and enable them to express themselves in speech and writing. We will extend their knowledge of how language works and explore the similarities and differences between the foreign language they are learning and English. We will also help strengthen their sense of identity through learning about culture in other countries and comparing it with their own.

French lessons include:


  • PowerPoints and interactive whiteboard materials
  • Interactive games (to consolidate their learning)
  • Songs & raps
  • Differentiated desk-based consolidation activities
  • Worksheets (at three different levels of challenge) are provided throughout each teaching unit and can be used in class or can be sent home to be completed as a homework exercise


Each lesson will focus on a combination of the 5 key language learning skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar).


Units within the scheme are grouped into various “Teaching Types”.

The teaching types within the scheme are –

  • Early Language Teaching (Y3)
  • Intermediate Language Teaching (Y4 & Y5)
  • Progressive Language Teaching (Y6)
  • Creative Curriculum Language Teaching (All year groups)
