French at Ludlow

A modern foreign language or ancient language (Latin or Greek) is mandatory in KS2 since September 2014.

Learning a second language is a long life skill and prepares our children for the future giving them an invaluable tool. At Ludlow Junior School, children are taught French during year group PPA time by an MFL Specialist Teacher. Four classes, in each year group, will learn French during three half terms across the academic year and one class will have French during two half terms.

Through the learning of French we aim to ensure all pupils:

  • Have the opportunity to study a foreign language and develop their interest in the culture of other country.
  • Listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding.
  • Engage in conversations, ask and answer questions, express opinions and respond to those of others, and seek clarification and help.
  • Read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing.
  • Broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary.
  • Write phrases from memory, and adapt these to create new sentences, expressing their ideas clearly.
  • Describe people, places, things and actions in speech and in writing.
