At Avonwood Primary School, we believe that learning a foreign language opens up endless opportunities and helps children to deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching of Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) at Primary level should lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at Key Stage 3.
At Avonwood, French is taught weekly by our fantastic specialist teacher Mrs Irvine via Rising Stars French. This interactive Scheme of Work compliments the objectives laid out in the National Curriculum. Rising Stars French has been written as a complete programme to be taught progressively through Years 3–6, with activities building on previous learning throughout.
Through Early Years and KS1, we prepare our children for the transition to KS2 by learning about the world around them in French. This could be through songs, poems or rhymes. This love of languages can then transfer to both reading, writing and the spoken language of French in more detail for KS2.
