I have been asking the children what they think about having French lessons and here's what they said.
" I like learning French as there are lots of different words to learn."
" I love it! It's really fun to learn a different language. It's good to learn so you can communicate in that country."
" We learn lots of new French words, like colours, instructions and names for family members."
In most classrooms there are French displays to aid learning and support the children in class.
Aims and Objectives
The aims and objectives of learning a modern foreign language in primary school are:
KS2 children have a regular forty minutes lesson of French a week, in order to ensure progression and skills development plus other opportunities throughout the week to practise what they have learnt.During French sessions children are given the opportunity to work as a class, as individuals and as part of a group. The choice of class organisation is determined by the learning task. By its nature MFL will involve lots of interaction with visual, auditory and kinaesthetic prompts. Lessons involve a range of activities but all usually follow the present, practise, produce model when learning vocabulary
