At Copenhagen Primary School, we learn French in Key Stage 2 from year 3, and we support children who are fluent French speakers and writers. The scheme we use is Rigolo.
We believe that learning a foreign language is a valuable social and cultural experience for pupils and the children practise their listening, speaking, reading and writing. We focus on spoken French for communication first and then lay the foundation for their future written language learning. Children develop their linguistic competence through talk, games, singing and interactive activities and get an insight into French culture.
This year, we are all starting with Unit 1. For all KS2 year groups, this will be a completely new, exciting experience.
