Languages Curriculum



Key Stage 2 Scheme of Work for French

At Copley Junior School, all children have opportunity to learn French as a Modern Foreign Language. Lessons are interactive and fun, with lots of songs, games and stories. All sessions follow a carefully planned Scheme of Work adapted and tailored from our core scheme ‘La Jolie Ronde’, as set out below.  This ensures we cover fully the National Curriculum Programmes of Study for Modern Foreign Languages and provide a systematic progression of skills.

Different elements of assessment are undertaken each half term and this will be either as a listening, speaking, reading or writing assessment using our Copley bepoke assessment model for Modern Foreign Languages.

We are keen to develop children's understanding of French culture and life and, as part of this, we have a close and valued link with Saint Joseph School in Carquefou, near Nantes. Please click here to find out more about our shared work and visits with Madame Le Normand, our pen friend scheme etc.

As part of our carefully designed curriculum, we plan links to international study and we are proud to have been accredited with the International Schools Award at Foundation Level. You can find out more by viewing our long term Cornerstones plans for each year group by clicking here.
