In Key Stage 2, use of the Kapow scheme, enhanced with other resources, ensures children learn to communicate in French. They follow instructions that are given in French and develop understanding of basic grammar and more complex written texts. Activities are linked to the contextual themes where appropriate. 

Over the course of their four years in Key Stage 2, children will be expected to make good progress in the main language chosen, learning to ask and answer questions, present ideas to an audience both in speaking and writing, read a range of words, phrases and sentences, and write simple phrases, sentences and descriptions in lie with the National Curriculum. In later years, children will also learn about the appropriate intonation and pronunciation of the language.

We aim to contextualise learning by:

  • listening to, joining in, responding and engaging in conversations using familiar vocabulary and phrases.

  • describing people, places things and actions orally

  • exploring the patterns of sounds of language

  • listening to and appreciating stories, songs, poems and rhymes

  • learning through use ICT, translating apps/websites etc

  • understand basic grammar

  • know key vocabulary

  • develop accurate pronunciation and intonation

  • consider culture and experiences of others
