Our French curriculum has been developed to provide our children with the vocabulary, and the oral and written skills to prepare them for their secondary education. Lessons are often taught discretely. However, where possible, links are made to our termly topics:

  • Welcome to Yorkshire
  • Influencers
  • Treasure


We have designed a progression of learning opportunities so that we can teach modern foreign language skills:

  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Reading
  • Writing


Our entire curriculum, including French, promotes opportunities to be Challenged, build Resilience, experience Enrichment and explore the wider World (#CREW).

Stakeholders have identified that our pupils lack confidence and life experiences. To ensure our pupils all reach their full potential, we have designed our French curriculum with a focus on these specific barriers which include:

  • Building confidence, stamina and independence
  • Developing oracy and extending vocabulary
  • Knowledge beyond their immediate locality
