French is our main modern foreign language with teaching beginning in Year 3. 

French is taught through stories, songs, poems, rhymes and paintings following the objectives of the National Curriculum KS2 languages programme of study.

Each lesson builds on high-frequency grammatical structures learned in the previous lessons. Lessons provide opportunities for speaking and listening, with writing and some reading where relevant. Lessons are interactive and French is spoken as much as possible.
