At Templars we learn French in KS2


Children gradually develop skills in oracy (listening and speaking) and literacy (reading and writing) over four years. We aim to build solid linguistic foundations and confidence, teach strategies to learn a foreign languages and have fun along the way!

This is how we do it:

• listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding

• explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words

• engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help

• speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures

• develop accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are reading aloud or using familiar words and phrases

• present ideas and information orally

• read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing

• appreciate stories, songs, poems and rhymes in the language

• broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary

• write phrases from memory, and adapt these to create new sentences, to express ideas clearly

• describe people, places, things and actions orally and in writing

• understand basic grammar appropriate to the language being studied, including: feminine, masculine and neuter forms and the conjugation of high frequency

verbs; key features and patterns of the language; how to apply these, for instance, to build sentences; and how these differ from or are similar to English
