Intent Statement for Foreign Language
Foreign language at Tilery enables children to express their ideas and thoughts in French and provides opportunities to interact and communicate with others both in speech and in writing. In Lower KS2, children acquire basic skills and understanding of French with a strong emphasis placed on developing their Speaking and Listening skills. These will be embedded and further developed in Upper KS2, alongside Reading and Writing. Through our French lessons, we intend to inspire pupils to develop a love of languages and to expand their understanding of other countries, cultures and people. We aim to provide our children with a foundation that will equip them for further language studies.
The National Curriculum for Foreign Languages aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
- Speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
- Can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
- Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
