our intent

At Dean Bank Primary School we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. The intention of the French curriculum at Dean Bank is that pupils develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. Though embedding the skills of listening, speaking reading and writing, we enable pupils to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts, and lay the foundations for future learning of languages. Our aim is to build upon the knowledge, skills and vocabulary of our pupils to help ensure progression throughout key stage 2.
