Modern Foreign Languages

Bonjour tout le monde!

Pupils at Macaulay learn French in Key Stage 2.

Learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures. It promotes children’s curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world.

Our aim is to ensure that children develop a good basic understanding and a love of French. We hope to give them the foundations for further foreign language learning at Key Stage 3 and beyond.

We enable our pupils to express their ideas in French by working on their speaking, listening and reading skills. We use songs, videos, games, books, stories and interactive activities to support and engage them. As children progress through Key Stage 2 they build on these skills and begin to write words, phrases and sentences in French.

Every year we celebrate with a French day. This involves the whole school learning about different aspects of French culture, such as music, art, food and fashion. This begins to build our EYFS and Key Stage 1 children’s understanding of French culture as we all celebrate together.

Children have access to French books and resources in our Supermarché book nook in the Key Stage 2 corridor.
