Learning through Modern Foreign Languages at Greenleas
 
At Greenleas we enjoy fostering children’s desire to learn about other cultures and languages.  We understand that learning languages not only teaches grammar, and speaking and listening, but it enhances confidence in these areas in the classroom in an enjoyable manner and a variety of contexts.  Languages are then continued through further education, after being given a secure basic knowledge and understanding whilst at Greenleas.
 
At Greenleas, French is the target language within Key Stage Two.
 
Our aims are:
To develop an awareness of other languages, and the cultures of where they are spoken.
To increase confidence in speaking fluently, both independently and prompted within a conversation.
To be able to read everyday words and recognise the key points of a short text.
To write everyday words fluently, building up to short texts using imagination.

French is taught through:
Weekly lessons
A range of schemes including QCA, Lightbulb Languages and Twinkl, adapted to meet the interests of our children
Classroom displays and labels around the school
Repetition and plentiful opportunities to practise conversational speech and pronunciation, for example when answering the register
Interactive resources, some of which can be accessed from home.

 
Additional Languages

An After-School Language Club in Mandarin has been popular since 2015 and is continuing in 2019!  Each year group have the opportunity to spend at least a half-term learning vocabulary, phrases, crafts and all about China through fun games and activities, made possible by links with teachers at Calday Grammar School.

 

 

Please see links for assembly resources, interactive games to support French learning, and a curriculum overview.
