French as a foreign language (FLE)

FLE in Key Stage 1

Aims and Purposes:

Our aim in French, in Key stage 1, is to offer children the opportunity to:

  • Become increasingly familiar with the sounds, and written forms of vocabulary and basic grammar of a modern foreign language;
  • Use their knowledge with growing confidence and competence to understand what they hear and read, and to express themselves in speech and in writing;
  • Use French as a means of communication within the classroom, and outside school;
  • Increase their cultural awareness by learning about French-speaking countries and their peoples, and by working with materials from those countries.

FLE in Key Stage 2

Aims and Purposes:

Our aim in French, in Key stage 2, is to offer children the opportunity to:

  • Become increasingly familiar with the sounds, and written forms of vocabulary and basic grammar of a modern foreign language;
  • Use their knowledge with growing confidence and competence to understand what they hear and read, and to express themselves in speech and in writing;
  • Use French as a means of communication within the classroom, and outside school; 
  • Develop linguistic competence, extend the knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities between the foreign language and English;
