Madame Heap is our specialist French teacher who delivers lessons to KS2 children every Tuesday afternoon.
We teach French from Nursery to Year 6. In Class 1 the children are informally exposed to the language and talk about the idea of other languages. In KS1 children are introduced to the basics of French for example counting to 20 and greetings.
Our aim is that by the time they leave primary school, children will be able to understand and speak French with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation. As they progress through Key Stage 2, pupils will be able to write at varying length using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt. Our KS2 children are also invited on a 4 day trip to France with children from other local village schools within the Ripon area.
