Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages at Broadheath

Modern Foreign Languages (French) is taught in class, by the class teacher throughout Key Stage 2.  The children are taught using the carefully structured Catherine Cheater Scheme (Golden Daffodils) which builds year upon year, on knowledge already learned.  It ensures progression from year to year and class to class. This is supplemented by Early Start and 2 Simple  French.

The children have the opportunity to learn basic words and phrases, building to more complex work using a variety of different teaching techniques and media.  These include direct teaching, songs, action rhymes, stories, dances and a range of Computing.

The emphasis is on:

  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Grammar
