French

Our Modern Foreign Language is taught by class teachers weekly. Basic vocabulary and grammar is taught through drama, songs and games with an emphasis on developing speaking and listening skills. The foreign language is also reinforced through other curriculum subjects such as PE where teachers use commands in the target language whilst warming up. As well as learning key vocabulary, children will learn about the culture of France and other French–speaking countries. At Downs Junior, our emphasis is on children enjoying learning French and becoming more confident in speaking in the target language.
