FRENCH AT KEY STAGE 3


Pupils at St. Anne´s School are introduced to the learning of French in Key Stage 2. At Key Stage 3, language learning is seen in a wider context. Pupils have the opportunity to understand and appreciate the different cultures and communities where French is spoken- and as they do so, begin to think of themselves as citizens of the world.

Aims:


 To ensure that language learning is a positive and enjoyable experience for all pupils

 To inspire confidence through the achievement of individual personal best

 To develop linguistic capabilities to the highest degree

 To raise awareness of other countries and cultures

 To promote communication skills which are transferable to other areas of life


The four skill areas of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing are explored fully. All teaching is done through a variety of styles so as to maximise the pupils’ experience of French and appeal to a range of different types of learners. Thus, pupils become actively involved in their learning.

Developing language-learning strategies

Pupils should be able to:

 identify patterns in the target language

 develop techniques for memorising words, phrases and spellings

 use their knowledge of English or another language when learning the target language

 use previous knowledge, context and other clues to work out the meaning of what they hear or read

 use reference materials such as dictionaries appropriately and effectively.

Developing language skills

Pupils should be able to:

 listen for gist or detail

 skim and scan written texts for the main points or details

 respond appropriately to spoken and written language

 use correct pronunciation and intonation

 ask and answer questions

 initiate and sustain conversations

 write clearly and coherently, including an appropriate level of detail

 redraft their writing to improve accuracy and quality

 reuse language that they have heard or read in their own speaking and writing

 adapt language they already know in new contexts for different purposes

 deal with unfamiliar language, unexpected responses and unpredictable situations.

The programme of study covers 3 main topic areas:

 everyday activities

 personal life and social relationships

 the world around us


Pupils use a textbook (Métro) and supplementary workbook; there is also a wide range of resources and up to date facilities to provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment for learning and presentation of work. White boards, Powerpoint slide shows and the Internet are used regularly, as well as a number of useful grammar and language websites to support and consolidate learning.
