At Green Lea we study French as part of the National Curriculum Languages requirement. Children in Key Stage One and Two are taught by a specialist French teacher weekly. Although there is no requirement for Key Stage One children to study languages we believe it helps to deepen children’s interest and curiosity about the world.
Madame Steven's provides a bespoke curriculum to the pupils of Green Lea which is aligned to the 12 statements of language learning outlined in the DfE programme of study and includes the three pillars of language learning – vocabulary, grammar, phonics.
The progressive scheme also incorporates cultural awareness and learning in a fun and creative way. It shows progression across the 2 Key stages - KS1 and LKS2. Across the course of the year there will be fun ways to learn about French culture and traditions as well as events that mark the French calendar e.g. Bastille Day
