FRENCH

2019 - 2020

The curriculum

Our vision: to ensure that all children are passionate and confident linguists and that they develop the language learning skills needed for secondary and beyond.

 

Languages is a compulsory subject for KS2 under the 2014 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.

Some of the French units are planned through a cross-curricular approach. 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.

Partner schools

We regularly work on joint projects with our three French partner schools. 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.

 

 

In 2016, we met our pen pals from Cherbourg

 

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.
