Language statement of intent
By the time they leave Northgate we aim for our children to;
Have experienced different languages and for this to foster their curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.
At Northgate French is now part of the school curriculum for all KS2 pupils.
We believe that through high quality language teaching and learning children will be able to foster curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.
We begin by introducing the children to the country and culture of France and spend most of the first year concentrating on spoken language. Talking then leads on to reading simple French words and phrases. By Year 6, children are expected to be reading and writing basic French.
All of this learning is undertaken in an enjoyable way, with lots of reinforcement to help children grow in confidence.
