Together We Can...

Modern Foreign Languages (French)

In French we will learn to…

‘respect our world beyond Little Weighton’ , ‘be confident to try new things’ and ‘show empathy and kindness’


At Little Weighton, our French curriculum enables children to develop a love of language and to expand their horizons to other countries, cultures and people. This knowledge will promote respect, tolerance and empathy for all people. Our curriculum aims to help children grow into curious, confident and reflective language learners and to provide them with a foundation that will equip them for further language studies.

Through the use of songs, rhymes, stories, poems and games, our French curriculum will enable children to:

  • Listen attentively to the spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding
  • Explore the patterns and sounds of language and link spelling, sound and meaning of words
  • Engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help
  • Speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures
  • Develop accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are reading aloud or using familiar words and phrases 
  • Present ideas and information orally to a range of audiences
  • Read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing
  • Broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary
  • Write phrases from memory, and adapt these to create new sentences, express ideas clearly
  • Describe people, places, and things orally and in writing
  • Understand some of the basic grammar in French
