Vision For Languages

As part of Rossett Acre’s value of ‘Excellence and Happiness for all’, our vision is to provide high-quality language learning that enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to others in speech and in writing.  Language teaching should foster an ‘enjoyment’ of French and provide the foundation for learning further languages. The languages curriculum will be underpinned by the school ethos of Curiosity, Challenge and Community. 

Languages in Early Years and Key Stage 1

There is no direct language learning, however Children are exposed to informal language learning opportunities through a European day of Languages assembly and follow up activities. Children learn about other languages and cultures through their knowledge of world festivals e.g. how Christmas is celebrated around the world. Their knowledge about how other languages are spoken is also be fostered through activities such as answering the register in different languages and by watching suitable language video clips.

Languages in Key Stage 2

French is taught from Year 3 to Year 6 following the Language Angels Scheme of Work, which has been adapted to meet the needs of the school. Children will cover a number of different units of work each year. Every unit is progressive and builds on previous learning.  

As well as each subsequent lesson within a unit being progressive, the teaching type organisation of Language Angels units also directs, drives and guarantees progressive learning and challenge. Units increase in level of challenge, stretch and linguistic and grammatical complexity as pupils move from Early Learning units through Intermediate units and into the most challenging Progressive units.   

Children will build on previous knowledge gradually as their foreign language lessons continue to recycle, revise and consolidate previously learnt language whilst building on all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Knowledge and awareness of required and appropriate grammar concepts will be taught throughout all units at all levels of challenge.
