Year 7 French

Year 7 French curriculum focuses on re-visiting basic language acquired in Years 3-6, recycling familiar vocabulary and establishing a solid foundation for more complex grammatical studies, such as an introduction of the simple future tense and modal verbs to express wishes. All work in class is underpinned with exposure to the target language and cultural examples from the francophone world. Teaching and learning are evenly distributed over the four key skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking.

The French room is equipped with mini iPads often used in lessons, as well as a range of textbooks, original texts in French (such as comic books, short stories, picture books), dictionaries, a variety of target language DVDs to aid exposure to native speakers and cultural understanding of French speaking countries, as well as engaging wall displays to aid in-class learning and spontaneous use of the target language.
