Key Stage 3
The aim of the Key Stage 3 Modern Foreign Languages curriculum is to provide students with the tools necessary to listen, speak, read and write in French as well as to learn more about France and the French speaking world. Throughout the course, students learn the grammatical structures and vocabulary needed to interact with a French native speaker in a variety of situations, including: introducing yourself, talking about where you live and transactional situations such as shopping and organising holidays.
At Key Stage 3, all students will receive four French lessons every fortnight. These lessons are supported by a clear learning and homework plan which helps students to reinforce key structures and language by building on their previous knowledge. It also gives them an appreciation of their own first language. This works as a solid foundation for study at Key Stage 4.
Students gain skills highly valued by employers, such as: independent learning, public speaking, listening and appreciation of different viewpoints and experiences.
