The teaching of Modern Foreign Languages is regarded as an important part of a child’s education at Harpur Hill. The children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We encourage children’s confidence, we strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language. Whilst planning, we actively plan links to develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries through; our school Values, British values and curriculum enrichment opportunities. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.


Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences.  



We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods: 

-     - Observing children speaking and listening in French. 

-     - Images and videos of children completing speaking and listening activities. 

-     - Learning walks 

-     - Subject tracking.
