Bonjour! Nous aimons apprendre le français à l’école Stobhillgate First School!

Hello! We love learning French at Stobhillgate First School!

The 2013 National Curriculum for Languages aims to ensure that all children:

  • Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
  • Are able to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and that they are continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
  • Can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.
  • Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

At Stobhillgate First School we are committed to ensuring that competence in another language enables children to interpret, create and exchange meaning within and across cultures. We believe it helps children develop skills that will open further opportunities later in life.The teaching of French in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further foreign language teaching at middle school.

We enjoy bringing French to life in our classrooms by encouraging lots of active learning through the use of games, songs, rhymes, storytelling and role play. To deliver the curriculum effectively, staff utilise a range of resources such as iPads, flash cards, games and visual aids.

Morpeth Partnership Curriculum Progression Document

We have been working closely with the Morpeth Partnership to produce documentation for each subject area.  These documents ensure clear progression and map out the teaching and learning journey your child will take in relation to each specific subject through each phase of their education.
