Modern Foreign Languages
At De Havilland Primary School, French is currently the target language for our Modern Foreign Language provision.
We aim to provide an inspiring and engaging experience of French throughout the school, drawing on culturally rich resources so that the language can be learnt within its real context. We adhere to the principles of language acquisition which initially prioritise a heavy emphasis on listening and responding to language, moving on to speech and sounds, before tackling reading and finally writing. Our pupils experience the language in fun, meaningful, real-life situations so that their learning is purposeful and relevant.
