Implementation

 

Our pupils should be able to organise their knowledge, skills and understanding around the following key concepts:

  • To read fluently
  • To write imaginatively
  • To speak confidently
  • To understand the culture of the countries in which the language is spoken.

 

These key concepts underpin learning in each milestone. This enables pupils to reinforce and build upon prior learning, make connections and develop subject specific language in French. The use of the scheme Rigolo helps support teachers in delivering engaging, high quality French lessons.     

 

The vertical accumulation of knowledge and skills from Years 1 to 6 is mapped as follows in the booklet below:

Modern Foreign Language Milestones

Impact

 

Assessment

Through the explicit teaching of Modern Foreign Language skills, both the teachers and the pupils assess their learning continuously throughout the lesson. Pupils are assessed using pre and post learning questions, devised by teachers and interwoven throughout the unit of learning.

 

Our assessment systems enable teachers to make informed judgements about the depth of their learning and the progress they have made over time.
