The National Curriculum requires all schools to teach one foreign language. It states that ‘The teaching should provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and should lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at Key Stage 3.
At St Werburgh’s we have chosen to teach French as our Modern Foreign Language. We follow the ‘Salut’ scheme of work. The scheme of work is separated into coverage for years 3/4 and years 5/6. Both include individual lesson plans and interactive whiteboard resources, which include an introduction to key vocabulary for each lesson, flashcards to support learning and games and songs to reinforce the learning objective. Teachers use games, role-play and action songs to ensure our children enjoy their learning and develop a love of learning another language.
