Our curriculum inspires pupils to be able to communicate with each other about topics that are relevant to their experiences. We offer a range of ways to learn the subject so that it is interesting and enjoyable. This will aim to deliver lessons that:  

  • help the children understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources  

  • help the children 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 

  • help the children to 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 French 

The National Curriculum provides the basis of our curriculum at Dunalley. 

The Language Angels’s ‘KS2 Limited Foreign Language Experience’ is the scheme that we follow. Our chosen language is French. 

The Language Angels scheme is broken down into a range of subject areas e.g. Les Animaux, Les Fruits etc. Each unit includes all 5 of the main areas of language - Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing and Grammar.  

From Year 3 to Year 6, the French curriculum level of learning and progression is increased and subsequently, more challenging. The scheme is broken into 3 Teaching Types – Early Language, Intermediate and Progressive. Year 3 pupils begin their French journey in the Early Language and by the end of Year 6, the children reach the Progressive Teaching Type.
