Our curriculum


At Guiseley Primary School, children are taught French weekly in KS2 from Year 3 to Year 6.  These lessons are taught through the use of a new scheme of learning, Language Angels. When appropriate, class teachers also ensure the language is used throughout the school week, in class and around school through the use of daily phrases to develop and reinforce language learning.  Children learn this language across four key skills, reading, writing, speaking and listening as well as learning about the necessary grammar skills appropriate to their stage of learning. 
We aim to develop children’s experience of language acquisition and encourage curiosity about languages. The children will extend their understanding of what they hear and read, and improve their ability to express themselves in speech and writing. They will extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences between other languages and English. The children will also strengthen their sense of identity through learning about the culture in France, comparing it with their own culture.
