Modern Foreign Languages

At Petham Primary School we teach children French in Key Stage 2 and we aim to make learning another language fun, enjoyable and purposeful. 


We focus on lots of speaking and listening activities to familiarise our children with the correct pronunciation, allowing them to use the new language and vocabulary in practical contexts. Games, songs, stories and role playing conversations help to make lessons more memorable and engaging. Our French lessons contain a wide variety of vocabulary and slowly introduces the foundations of the language structure. Throughout the year our children will use their new knowledge to communicate about a range of topics including; food and drink, sports, family, weather, etc. 


it is our intent to introduce the learning of the French language and the understanding of its culture in enjoyable and stimulating ways. We will lay the foundations for future language learning in secondary school.   

It is our aim to:

  • Embed the essential skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing. 

  • Build the children’s ‘cultural capital’ so that they are aware of similarities and differences between cultures.  

  • Progressively develop skills by building on previous knowledge.  

French Cafe 


Owls and Woodpeckers had a great time putting their French conversational skills into practise at our French Cafe. They ordered their own food in French and enjoyed sampling croissants, baguettes, brioche, crepes and hot chocolate which they paid for in euros and cents. 

The children dressed up with a French theme and the outfits so all so amazing and creative - well done to you all!
