St. Helen's Primary School



In French, our teaching programme aims to encourage an enjoyment and understanding of French, designed to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.

We offer a bespoke curriculum designed around a rolling programme enabling a progression in French across both key stages.

In Key Stage 1, in order for children to become familiar with a foreign language, they look at a variety of songs, stories, rhymes and games where they are given the opportunity to practise basic speaking and listening skills and their pronunciation of a ‘new’ language.

In Key Stage 2, children build on these foundations by using what they know to engage in conversation as they use sentences and phrases to describe people, places and things.  Children will then begin to read and write as their understanding of French deepens and they grow in confidence and fluency.
