When children move into Year 3 they begin lessons in French. This is the Modern Foreign Language we choose to study. Children do most of their work orally but do, as time goes on, begin to write words and phrases.
We have recently adopted a new French scheme throughout Key Stage 2. It is called 'Salut' and is very interactive. The children learn new vocabulary for each topic and are able to hear the true French pronunciation, there are lots of games, stories and songs for each topic. The children have really enjoyed their experiences of it so far and are learning lots- "It is really fun. We play good games and the games help us to learn French."
The children also copy out the new French vocabulary and begin to write in sentences and answer written questions.
They like the stories in French at the end of each unit of work and are surprised that they can understand quite a lot of the text.
