National Curriculum requirements for Key stage 2: Foreign language

Teaching may be of any modern or ancient foreign language and should focus on enabling pupils to make substantial progress in one language. The teaching should provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and should lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at key stage 3. It should enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focused on familiar and routine matters, using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary.




At Bampton CE primary School we teach our Key Stage Two children French using a scheme of work produced by La Jolie Ronde. Lessons are supported by a variety of resources including French books and games.

In Year 4 children take part in a Burford Partnership Languages Day led by the Modern Foreign Languages staff at Burford Secondary School.
