At Northway, we have elected to teach our KS2 pupils French. Following consultation with our local secondary schools the majority of Y7 pupils learn French and as such we felt it was right to teach this to give them the best possible start to their languages education. We believe that teaching our pupils French will deepen their cultural understanding of one of our closest geographical neighbours and allow them to express themselves and respond to others in another language.

Our French curriculum is organised over a one year cycle. Children are taught in their year group cohorts to allow for progression year on year. Pupils are firstly taught to speak French through basic introductions, questions and responses. As they progress through the key stage, they develop their understanding of French in a range of contexts. Pupils are taught to listen and respond and begin to write French, using basic grammar as they progress through the Upper Juniors.
