Modern Foreign Languages


 

  • The National Curriculum states that the focus of study in modern languages in Key Stage 2 will be on practical communication. At Cheriton Primary school pupils have long been able to appreciate the value and knowledge of a different culture through the integration of many Nepali students and staff. Cheriton has French as a main language with some German also being taught. Children learn to appreciate and respect other languages around them and to start to understand different cultures as well.
  • French is taught throughout Key Stage 2. Children listen to spoken language through the form of conversations, songs and rhymes. They hear correct pronunciation from native speakers using the Rising Stars Languages scheme which builds up progression over each year. They join in games, watch and listen to stories and answer quizzes.
  • The children write to a twin school in France and once a year the French school come to visit their pen pals in Cheriton and share songs and conversations.
  • Children enjoy learning French in a practical conversational way and the skills are a helpful transition to learning languages at Key Stage 3. The children respond orally developing language skills and some written work on vocabulary.

 

  • Our vision
  • To enable pupils to learn through fun activities.
  • To enable pupils to communicate in their second language.
  • To develop pupils’ confidence in speaking another language.
