Pupils will be taught French throughout Key Stage 2 at Ark Blacklands.

Children learn to speak about themselves, their families and their likes and dislikes both in and out of school. Children will experience songs and stories told in French alongside vocabulary acquisition and asking and answering questions, speaking in short phrases and sentences. 

To support our teaching of French, we use  the resources provided by Salut! - an Interactive Whiteboard teaching package for KS2 French! It’s bursting with a huge range of fun and colourful resources for brilliant lessons throughout KS2. More details can be found on their webiste here:


It includes interactive games, singalongs, stories and activities to help children get to grips with the language — and have plenty of fun while they’re at it.
