French at Pucklechurch
The National Curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:
- understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources;
- speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation;
- can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures they have learnt;
- discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
At Pucklechurch, children will have lessons in which they will learn to speak, understand and write basic French. They will learn vocabulary relating to themselves and their lives, and will hold conversations reflecting everyday situations. They will also find out about the customs, traditions and everyday life in French speaking countries.
