Bienvenue! Learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures. At Bournville Village Primary School, our teaching of French aims to foster pupils' curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. We enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond, both in speech and in writing. We use a variety of teaching strategies to introduce the children to French in order to develop both ability and confidence. This will be taught using songs, stories and games throughout Key Stage 2.
In Key Stage 1, we will develop the foundations required for learning a language in KS2 by using simple greetings and phrases, as well as exposing pupils to numbers and letters, in French.
