“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.”

Frank Smith



We believe that children have a natural curiosity and confidence to explore other countries, cultures and languages. Through teaching French at KS2, we aim to deepen children’s understanding of the world, develop their global identity and reveal to children the enjoyment and reward of learning another language. We want children to feel confident and capable when learning French, able to experiment with vocabulary, make links, play games and hear stories in the language. We want our children to experiment with the language, feeling confident when exploring new words and sounds and demonstrating resilience when challenged. Our pupils will have the opportunity to embed key knowledge through a range of games and activities. This knowledge will be vital to their understanding and use of the language in a range of contexts.  We want to lay the foundations for future language learning, encouraging children to enjoy, ask questions and explore other countries, cultures and languages.
