Callicroft Primary Academy

Modern Foreign Languages

At Callicroft we are learning French in years 1 to 4.  This sometimes takes place on a weekly basis although can be grouped into a block of learning over several days; and, where possible, is linked to the new curriculum. It provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for all pupils. As well as hearing and speaking French, the children are given an insight into their own culture and those of others.

Children in Foundation and KS1 are introduced to French through greetings, colours and counting. We enjoy singing simple French songs too!

Children in KS2 progress further and follow the KS2 framework which includes oracy (speaking and listening), literacy (reading and writing and intercultural understanding.
