Modern Foreign Language

French has been chosen as our modern foreign language at Harris Primary Kent House.

At HPAKH, we believe that learning a language enriches the curriculum and provides excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers. Studying foreign languages is an essential part of our pupils' education. It enables children and their families to develop a positive attitude toward and respect for the cultural richness of our society and the world in which we live and work.

Our French curriculum is in line with the new National Curriculum and is adapted to each class topic to ensure children learn French in a meaningful context.

In Early Years children can listen to and perform traditional songs and join in with story-telling. Through this, children will hear the different sounds that occur in French and start to practice pronouncing some keywords and phrases.

In Key Stage 2, teachers use a curriculum developed by the Harris Federation. This scheme of work enables children to hear French spoken by native speakers and builds their understanding of vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar. Our weekly lesson encourages and supports the children to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, role-play activities and games. The children's work is recorded through pictures, captions and audio recordings and celebrated in their class 'Big Book'. Formative and summative assessments are used during French lessons to ensure substantial progress over the four years.

Throughout the academic year, the children will also have the opportunity for intercultural understanding by participating in events like la Journée de la Francophonie (Francophonie Day) and celebrating la fete de la Bastille (Bastille Day).
