The National Curriculum outlines that students should be given the opportunity to make significant progress in a foreign language. The language of choice here at Krishna Avanti Primary is French and we strive to deliver our teaching of this subject to a high standard and create a passion for language learning amongst the pupils.

Our focus of study in French lessons will be on practical communication however pupils will also be taught to:

  • Listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding.
  • Explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words.
  • Engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help.
  • Speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases, and basic language structures.
  • Develop accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are reading aloud or using familiar words and phrases.
  • Present ideas and information orally to a range of audiences.
  • Read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases, and simple writing.
  • Appreciate stories, songs, poems and rhymes in the language.
  • Broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary.
  • Write phrases from memory, and adapt these to create new sentences, to express ideas clearly.
  • Describe people, places, things and actions orally and in writing.

European Day celebrations at KAPSH

To celebrate European day, the Global School Alliance launched an
amazing competition called ‘For me, learning a language is…’ This competition was open to students from all around the world, who are studying European languages. It was a chance for us to let our imagination run wild and express what learning a language means to us.  We were allowed to express ourselves through presentations, artwork, videos, or any other creative way we could think of!
