Hartburn Primary School offers a relevant, broad, vibrant and ambitious French curriculum, which develops an interest in the lifelong learning of languages for our learners. Promoting confidence, high expectations and a positive curiosity about the world, the language curriculum develops awareness and understanding of cultural differences. Children develop the 5 blocks of language learning: reading, writing, speaking, listening and grammatical knowledge acquisition. Our culture of expecting, respecting, inspecting and correcting mistakes encourages children to have a go, pushing them out of their comfort zone and so developing their resilience.
Children are immersed in a world of language and are encouraged to use it throughout the school day. Cultural days populate the academic calendar, providing the children of Hartburn Primary School with the opportunities to experience ‘French days’ and celebrate the European Day of Languages. To prepare our younger learners, all KS1 children have the opportunity to attend and participate in a lunch time French club. Conversational work, practical activities, songs, activities and games are embedded within lessons to promote memory, recall and application in a fun and engaging learning environment.
Children leave Hartburn Primary School at the end of KS2, prepared to continue their language journey, having gained a deeper understanding of language learning. Learning French at Hartburn encourages and promotes lifelong learning of languages. Through a broad and rich curriculum, children become confident, knowledgeable and prepared to continue language learning beyond primary school. Children are more culturally aware of values and traditions, gain an understanding of their own global and local responsibility and are well equipped to contribute as a global citizen.
