At Mary Bassett School, children learn French through three core strands: using spoken language, reading and understanding, and writing. Teachers plan learning experiences to strengthen confidence and foster a love of language, with a strong emphasis on games and fun. Children develop their skills in spoken language by listening and responding appropriately, engaging in conversations and exploring patterns and sounds. When reading and writing, children are taught to use dictionaries to help compose simple sentences and understand basic grammar. Although French is the principal Modern Foreign Language taught formally to Key Stage 2 pupils, children will be exposed to other languages, including those represented by our school community, local area and they will learn about different countries and their people through the range of learning themes they encounter as they journey through the school.
Curriculum learning for years 3 and 4 in French lessons is outlined below. The progression of children's skills and knowledge in French is outlined in the MBLS Learning Scale. If you have any queries regarding how any aspect of French is taught in your child’s year group then please contact their class teacher in the first instance.
French teaching at The Mary Bassett Lower School is coordinated by Mrs Hughes.
