At Gonville Academy, we have a French curriculum which ensures that children develop key language learning skills, as well as a love of languages and a broad understanding of other cultures.

We believe that a high-quality language education should foster children’s curiosity, encourage them to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to be effective communicators. Our curriculum provides opportunities for children to communicate for practical purposes and build a solid foundation for continued language learning at secondary; all while having fun and developing self-confidence.

We do this by:

  • Teaching French throughout Key Stage 2;
  • Ensuring that French is a high-profile part of our curriculum;
  • Ensuring all four areas of language learning (speaking & listening, reading and writing) are taught;
  • Providing role play opportunities for children to practise and develop their learning.
