‘One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.’

Frank Smith

At Aston and Cote primary we learn to speak in French.

All the children in KS2 have a French lesson each week learning about every day topics and the French way of life. Children in FS and KS1 learn French songs, games and familiar language like telling others their name, how they are feeling, numbers to 10.

We try to incorporate the language we have learnt into other areas of the curriculum and general school routines.

We use the Salut scheme and this is supplemented with additional enrichment opportunities such as events like a French Breakfast; in year 6, a trip to see a French play and in Y3/4 additional lessons from Henry Box.

The Witney partnership offers many professional training opportunities and model lessons which we also share with our pupils.

Further details of our French curriculum are available in the curriculum overviews in this section and on each class web  page.
