Curriculum Intent

At Wooburn Green Primary School we intend to develop in our children an interest in learning other languages in an enjoyable and stimulating way. We would like to encourage a curiosity and an awareness of cultural differences, for our pupils to become more open and adaptable to new experiences and for them to have the skills and confidence to consider themselves as global citizens who belong in a multicultural and mutually respectful world. We also aim to provide a foundation for learning further languages, through the teaching of oracy skills.

Curriculum Implementation

Our French curriculum is mapped out to ensure a progression of skills and knowledge. We teach French through a range of topics and focus on the skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing and the culture of France.
