Our Aim

At Fell Dyke, and in accordance with the National Curriculum, we believe that learning a Modern Foreign Language fosters pupils’ curiosity, deepens their intercultural understanding and enhances their communication skills. Furthermore, we believe that learning French is a foundation to the learning of other foreign languages.

Curriculum Organisation

French is taught across Key Stage 2 following the Rachel Hawkes scheme of work which enables progression across mixed year group classes. This scheme is based upon three key knowledge strands: phonics, vocabulary and grammar. This approach enables children to use their building blocks of language acquisition to express their own ideas with increased accuracy, confidence and independence.

Knowledge, Progress and Assessment

Children’s progress and knowledge development is assessed throughout each learning opportunity. By the end of each term, we expect the children to communicate with a partner and for this to be recorded as evidence of progression.
