- Are able to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding
ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and
- Ask questions, and that they are continually improving the accuracy of their
pronunciation and intonation.
- Can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the
variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.
- Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied
Our high-quality language curriculum will foster children’s curiosity and deepen pupils
understanding of the world. At Somerville Primary School, we are committed to
ensuring that competence in another language enables children to interpret, create and
exchange meaning within and across cultures. It also helps children develop skills that will
open further opportunities later in life. The teaching of French from F2 to Year 6 provides an
appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further
foreign language teaching at KS3.
Children will develop their skills working as linguists.
