Teaching at Gunter Primary school will focus on the ‘modern’ Foreign Language of French, enabling pupils to make substantial progress in this one language. The teaching will provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language in order to lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at key stage 3. It will enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focused on familiar and routine matters, using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary.
The focus of study in modern languages at Gunter will be on practical communication
Learning another language presents opportunities for the reinforcement of knowledge, skills and understanding developed in other curriculum areas. It is important to find productive ways of integrating work in a new language with the rest of the primary curriculum, while reinforcing work in other subjects at the same time.
