The intention of the French curriculum at Norwich Road Academy is that children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We encourage children’s confidence, we strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language. The teaching and planning of French helps to develop pupils’ awareness of cultural differences in other countries, British values and curriculum enrichment opportunities. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.
Our MFL curriculum is designed to progressively develop children skills in languages, through regular taught lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary and knowledge. We follow the Language Angels Scheme of work to ensure coverage and progression across school. All our children in KS2 have regular language lessons.
