Value in Everyone


Intent - 

At Jarrow Cross Church of England Primary School, we intend for all children to develop positive attitudes towards other languages and cultures. This interest should be encouraged by being given regular stimulating and enjoyable French lessons which build confidence and promote the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. It is our intention to ensure that by the end of our children’s primary education, they have acquired an understanding of both spoken and written French, confidence to speak in French with others and know how important other languages can be in their future.


Impact - 

We use formative assessment to measure the impact of our French curriculum, which is
recorded and monitored on a tracking system. Evidence of learning and experiences can
be found in books and through conversations with our children. The French lead monitors
the teaching and evidence of the subject through book and planning scrutinies,
alongside observations of lessons and conversations with the staff team. Our
Knowledge Organisers, ongoing retrieval powerpoints (see Year Group page) and many
other activities and strategies are used to revisit and recap prior learning, and to
assess retained facts.

Deeper Learning -

Deeper learning and understanding in French should show flair and curiosity for language and its culture. They eagerly engage in learning new vocabulary, building on their current knowledge and seek to learn new phrases which they can apply within their spoken and written work. They will play with language and develop a greater understanding of grammatical rules and the start to link matching sound words from previous topics.


Examples of what greater depth looks like within the key stage objectives can be seen in the assessment grid below.  The final column will demonstrate greater depth learning for each individual objective and how it is achieved.
