At Windwhistle Primary School, our focus language, taught across Key Stage 2, is French and we use iLanguages French scheme of work which supports all of the requirements of the National Curriculum. It has a strong phonics focus and support for non-specialists, resources – good sounds files and video clips to aid pronunciation. We believe that learning a foreign language will foster children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. It can provide a valuable insight to the cultures and societies where French is a predominant language. We believe that the teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts and to understand and respond to its speakers in speech and in writing to support practical purposes.
