11 Languages Curriculum Teaching may be f any mdern r ancient freign language and shuld fcus n enabling pupils t make substantial prgress in ne language. The teaching shuld prvide an apprpriate balance f spken and written language and shuld lay the fundatins fr further freign language teaching at key stage 3. It shuld enable pupils t understand and cmmunicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, fcused n familiar and rutine matters, using their knwledge f phnlgy, grammatical structures and vcabulary. The fcus f study in mdern languages will be n practical cmmunicatin. If an ancient language is chsen the fcus will be t prvide a linguistic fundatin fr reading cmprehensin and an appreciatin f classical civilisatin. Pupils studying ancient languages may take part in simple ral exchanges, while discussin f what they read will be cnducted in English. A linguistic fundatin in ancient languages may supprt the study f mdern languages at key stage 3. listen attentively t spken language and shw understanding by jining in and respnding explre the patterns and sunds f language thrugh sngs and rhymes and link the spelling, sund and meaning f wrds engage in cnversatins; ask and answer questins; express pinins and respnd t thse f thers; seek clarificatin and help* speak in sentences, using familiar vcabulary, phrases and basic language structures develp accurate prnunciatin and intnatin s that thers understand when they are reading alud r using familiar wrds and phrases* present ideas and infrmatin rally t a range f audiences* read carefully and shw understanding f wrds, phrases and simple writing appreciate stries, sngs, pems and rhymes in the language braden their vcabulary and develp their ability t understand new wrds that are intrduced int familiar written material, including thrugh using a dictinary write phrases frm memry, and adapt these t create new sentences, t express ideas clearly describe peple, places, things and actins rally* and in writing understand basic grammar apprpriate t the language being studied, including (where relevant): feminine, masculine and neuter frms and the cnjugatin f high-frequency verbs; key features and patterns f the language; hw t apply these, fr instance, t build sentences; and hw these differ frm r are similar t English. The starred (*) cntent abve will nt be applicable t ancient languages At St. Barthlmew s children have the pprtunity t learn French. Beginning in Receptin the children are taught simple vcab and phrases, principally thrugh sng, games and daily repetitin. By the time they reach Year 2, they have a sund basis f everyday vcab and cultural knwledge, ready t begin the Key Stage 2 Prgramme f Study in Years 3 and 4. The MFL department fllw the Institut Francais prgramme, develped in assciatin with ALL The Assciatin fr Language Learning and Netwrk fr Languages. The levels we fllw are Niveau Bleu (Year 3) and Niveau Blanc (Year 4), which adhere t the Natinal Curriculum guidelines fr MFL study. These levels incrprate further cultural and gegraphical study and intrducing mre French sngs, rhymes and stries. Frm Year 3 there is mre emphasis n listening and writing skills, which includes an intrductin int French grammar and phnics. Dictinary wrk is encuraged and cultural knwledge is expanded. Oral wrk fcuses n prnunciatin and intnatin s that the children can speak with increasing cnfidence, fluency and spntaneity, finding ways f cmmunicating what they want t say. (Nat. Curriculum Sept 2013:DfE) In additin t this, children are encuraged t speak and recgnize French thrughut the day t develp cnfidence and understanding.
