All children in KS2 are taught French part of their lessons each week. A high-quality language education can foster pupils' curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to speakers, both in speech and in writing. Language teaching at KS2 provides the foundation for learning further languages when transferring to Secondary school. Children are taught to listen carefully to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding. Children are given the opportunity to explore the patterns and sounds of language through interactive fun lessons, by using songs, rhymes, poems and stories.
