Learn Together, Shine Together.


In Key Stage 2 the children will learn a modern foreign language. The language we have chosen to learn at Holy Trinity is French. We use many resources to support the teaching of French at Holy Trinity. Mrs Blanchard, who leads this subject also teaches French to all our Key Stage 2 children in our specially fitted out 'French classroom'. Each KS2 class receives a 40 minute lesson per week. French vocabulary and conversation is also reinforced by the class teachers and linked to other areas of the curriculum, wherever possible.


In Years 3 and 4 the children will experiment with and practise making the sounds from the French language. They will begin to recognise and respond to familiar words and short sentences that they hear.


In Years 5 and 6 the children will be expected to engage in conversations and respond to the opinions of others.


We aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources

  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation

  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt

  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
