Curriculum overview

The named Modern Foreign Languages Subject Leader at Our Lady's is Mrs J Foster.

Learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures.  At Our Lady's we have chosen to teach French in Key Stage 2.

The 2014 national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity
  • can write at varying lengths
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing.


At Our Lady's Pupils listen and respond to a variety of spoken and written language activities through engaging in conversations, songs and rhymes and reading stories.  We aim to develop their ability to understand words and phrases as well as developing an understanding of basic grammar.  Additional activities may also including looking at aspects of French culture through films and also the Year 6 residential trip.
