French at The Whartons
 
Primary School
❝If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.❞
 
‒Nelson Mandela

 

MFL/ French Objectives

 

Teach discrete lessons in Key Stage 2 (KS2) and offer language and culture experiences in Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

 

Compare their own culture and others to gain a better understanding of both.
 

Provide opportunities for cross-curricular links and reinforce knowledge, skills and understanding developed in other subjects.
 

Prepare children for Key Stage 3 (KS3) expectations of being able to read, write, listen to and speak French.

Planning and teaching 

 

In years 3, 4 and 5 the teaching of French is planned following the guidelines set out in the Wakefield Scheme of work written by Rachel Redfearn. This ensures that there is continuity and progression in both skills and content across all classes.

 

In Year 6 specialist MFL teachers come into school from Prince Henry’s to teach lessons.
