Modern Foreign Languages - French 2022-2023

Curriculum Statement of Intent 2021-2022

Here at  Moreton Say CE Primary School we are lucky to have our own specialist French teacher, Madame Belfield. Every child in school enjoys a lesson in French each week.  The main emphasis is on speaking and listening skills but, as children progress in their leanring and become better skilled and more proficient, they also complete reading and writing tasks during lessons. As children progress through the school, their conversational skills develop and they become increasingly capable of communicating for practical purposes using and applying a growing bank of vocabulary in a range of different contexts.

Madame Belfield introduces the children to French life and culture via a variety of different topics including food, celebrations and French Art and Music.  Sessions are made as interactive as possible with lots of games and singing.   Children in Key Stage One are given a ‘flavour’ of what is to come in Key Stage Two as French language is embedded through daily routines by their classroom teacher.

As a school we value the ability to communicate in a language other than our own. We also recognise the opoortunities that can arise when an individual can travel and explore the world and thus aim to secure, for our pupils, a sound and solid grasp of a language other than English and a passion and enthusiasm for exploration, travel and the associated art and culture than accompanies such adventures!
