French at The Duke of Bedford

At our school we use 'Language Angels' to help plan and deliver progressive, engaging and fun French lessons to our Key Stage Two pupils. Language Angels ensures the three pillars of learning a modern foreign language are covered through phonics, vocabulary and grammar. The programme follows progressive units and as children learn and develop they will cover early language, intermediate and progressive language lessons. Within all three of these levels the children will practise speaking, listening, reading and writing in French. 

Children can access the games area of the scheme at home and the games content is matched to class learning as an additional resource. (Details on how to log in can be found on the letter that was sent home below.)

The image below shows the vocabulary that we aim for all pupils to have learnt and be able to use in speaking, listening, reading and writing by the time they leave us at the end of Year 6. Each unit of study also contains its own important vocabulary and we are ambitious in hoping that all pupils will retain and recall key vocabulary they have learnt in each unit of study.
