The curriculum

Languages is a compulsory subject for KS2 under the 2014 New Curriculum

 

At Sudbury, we aim to provide our pupils with a multicultural understanding and a firm foundation for continued language learning as they progress to secondary education and beyond.

We have a rich and broad curriculum, where the use of authentic resources motivate the pupils and enable them to develop their language skills and their intercultural understanding.

Most of the French units are planned through a CLIL approach (Content and Language Integrated Learning). Linking the school topics to the language lessons allows the students to communicate for practical purposes (KS2 PoS), use higher thinking skills and be immersed in the language.

 

We regularly work on joint projects with our two French partner schools. In addition, we embed a creative range of international activities to provide the children with a window into different cultures and countries, preparing them for life in a global society.

Useful links for home learning

Please see our French blog Français pour loulous to know more about the activities we do in class and to see samples of the pupils work.

Ask Madame Rivas for the login to linguafun, our language learning site where children can enjoy practising the language they have learned in class through a variety of activities.

Partner schools

We regularly work on joint projects with our three French partner schools: École La Cougourlude (Lattes) École Providence (Paris), École Maurice Tollemer (Cherbourg). The children develop fluency in the process of writing letters and recording videos to their pen pals. In addition, school partnerships add an extra dimension to language learning and build intercultural understanding in a real context, as the pupils experience the French culture in first person.

Celebrating languages

We celebrate languages and diversity all year round. We participate in international projects to mark the European Day of Languages and the International Mother Languages Day. Every year we organise a French language and culture day where the children enjoy art activities, food tasting and a French theatre performance.
