Ridgeway Primary School

Believe, Endeavour, Succeed Together


Here at Ridgeway we teach French as our modern foreign language. This is done across Key Stage 2, so children start their sessions in Year 3 and carry on until they leave us and move to Secondary school.

The children learn through speaking and listening activities and move toward written learning as they progress through school.   We also learn about France and its traditions, for example comparing French Christmas Traditions with those in the UK. 

French is taught across a range of themes; for example foods and animals including pets.  Children are taught to express likes and dislikes in French.  We have a range of story books in French which are used, alongside other resources to bring the language to life.
