Learning another language develops children’s cultural awareness and understanding of the world around them. It extends their knowledge of how language works and helps them to develop communication skills. At Winslow CE School we teach the children French using a carefully planned sequence of lessons that ensures progressive coverage of the skills required by the National Curriculum.

Lessons stimulate pupils’ curiosity and enable pupils to begin to express their ideas and thoughts in the new language and to understand its speakers, both in speech and writing. At the heart of our French curriculum is the desire to expose children to authentic French, with regular opportunities to listen to native speakers. In order to ensure this and progression of knowledge and skills, we follow the Kapow scheme for French.  The progression grids are available to view at school as the documents cannot be published on other websites.
