French

Lakey Lane Primary School have adopted the ‘Language Angels’ scheme of Modern Foreign Language teaching to cover the key elements of language learning; speaking, listening, reading & writing. This education begins in Year 3 with Early language units, progressing into Intermediate units for Years 4 & 5, moving into Progressive Units in Year 6. Due to Covid-19 and the education children have missed this year, the French leaning curriculum has been tailored to support teachers and children in closing their foreign language gaps, whilst continuing to strengthen their French skill. We have worked to ensure that these subject areas and adjustments still fulfil the DfE PoS Attainment Targets (see tables below).

In addition to weekly French lessons, this year children will take part in a Bastille Day celebration on Wednesday 14th July 2021 to further their understanding of French culture and life beyond the classroom.
