In preparation for the Year 6 trip to France and to increase the children’s global awareness, French language and customs are taught in each class in Key Stage 2.

The emphasis is on conversation and building the children’s confidence in speaking. Using songs, interactive games, sight words and activities, vocabulary and phrases are reinforced regularly so that the children can converse with a partner. Repetition and frequent practise develops understanding and builds fluency.

Once the children travel to France in Year 6 they should be confident to use greetings, ask  and answer questions, say ‘please’ and  ‘thank you’ and talk about themselves in French.
