French at CAW
To best meet the needs of children in French, each lesson will be centred on a question that will springboard the key grammar and vocabulary needed in order to confidently answer the question in a variety of ways. Every lesson should have a clear grammar focus that can then in turn be used to deepen the children’s understanding of English grammar. The language should be visible around the classroom and opportunities for speaking French across the curriculum should be given as appropriate.
It is our intent that teaching of French will deepen children’s understanding of the world and provide them with an insight in to different cultures. The purpose of learning a language should be made explicitly clear to the children, along with a focus on practical communication.
