4The Primary French Project French teaching materials for use in the KS2 classroom have the following aims:to exemplify the Programme of Study for Languages in Key Stage 2to train teachers with little or no knowledge of French (language and methodology)
5The Primary French Project The materials support all teachers of French in KS2 by:providing class teaching materials that develop the teacher’s subject knowledge (French language and culture);saving planning time - all materials include half-termly planning and weekly lesson plans;saving preparation time - all materials include easy-to-use PowerPoint presentations to enable teachers to deliver each lesson through the interactive whiteboard, together with printable picture cards and word cards, and links to French story books on line;providing exemplification of the Programme of Study for Languages in KS2, with strong links to literacy;providing a scaffolding for linguistic progression throughout KS2.
6Primary French Project Training Although the Primary French Project materials can be used to teach children, their core purpose is to be a mechanism that trains the teacher.
7Primary French Project Training By using the materials to teach children, the teacher’s subject knowledge is developed in terms of vocabulary, linguistic progression, grammar, pronunciation, intonation and spelling, as well as cultural knowledge.
8Primary French Project Training Primary French training is developed over a minimum of four years, starting with niveau bleu, then moving on to niveau blanc, niveau rouge and niveau tricolore.
9Primary French Project Training A complete course of KS2 French training comprises:1st year of training - use niveau bleu materials to teach children in year 3;2nd year of training - use niveau blanc materials to teach children in year 4;3rd year of training - use niveau rouge materials to teach children in year 5;4th year of training - use niveau tricolore materials to teach children in year 6.
10Primary French Project Training Primary French training at each level is achieved as the teacher uses the materials for a minimum of one school year for:planningdeliveryassessment
11Primary French Project Training Training for secondary teachers is identified as niveau multicolore, and this is designed to help secondary teachers to understand the primary experience and to build upon it in Key Stage 3 and beyond.
12Primary French Project Training Training at each level begins when the Primary French materials are introduced by means of a one-day course to teachers, subject leaders, headteachers, governors, advisors or trainers.
13Primary French Project Training The materials can then be disseminated and used in schools by any practitioner or trainer who has attended the initial training day, or who has been introduced to the materials by a colleague who has attended the initial training day.
14Primary French Project Training The introductory training days are run throughout the country by Network for Languages. For details of training events in your region, please see or contact your local Network for Languages Centre.
15Primary French Project Training Primary schools are strongly encouraged to become members of the Association for Language Learning. ALL Primary Hubs across the country will offer focussed support that can help teachers to further develop their subject knowledge, and their confidence in the classroom.
16Primary French Project Accreditation Delegates who attend the introductory training day receive an attendance certificate. Teachers who use the materials as recommended, to teach French to children throughout a whole school year, may download a certificate, as evidence that they have completed the training at the corresponding level.
17Primary French Project Training KS2 practitioners should start at niveau bleu level, before moving on to niveau blanc, niveau rouge and niveau tricolore.
18Primary French Project Training The full length of training for KS2 French is a minimum of four years.Full training in one level or “niveau” should be completed before moving to the next level. For example, teachers should complete niveau bleu before embarking on niveau blanc.
19Training LogA downloadable log and a digital information pack are currently being developed and will be available on Culturethèque from June 2014.The log will help schools to provide evidence of training and development in terms of primary French teaching.
20Continuity KS2-KS3Training and support for secondary teachers of French will be offered as part of the project, to enable secondary teachers to build on children’s prior learning. This level of training is known as niveau multicolore.
21Continuity KS2-KS3A similar log for secondary schools will be downloadable from Culturethèque from Autumn The log will help secondary MFL departments to show how they are building upon children’s prior learning in French.

33Languages – Purpose of Study Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.
34Languages – Purpose of Study The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.
35Languages – Purpose of Study It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language.
36Languages – Purpose of Study Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
37Languages – AimsThe national curriculum for languages aims 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.
38Subject Content – KS2Teaching may be of any modern or ancient foreign language and should focus on enabling pupils to make substantial progress in one language. The teaching should provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and should lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at key stage 3.
39Subject Content – KS2It should enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focused on familiar and routine matters, using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary.
40Subject Content – KS2The focus of study in modern languages will be on practical communication. If an ancient language is chosen the focus will be to provide a linguistic foundation for reading comprehension and an appreciation of classical civilisation. Pupils studying ancient languages may take part in simple oral exchanges, while discussion of what they read will be conducted in English. A linguistic foundation in ancient languages may support the study of modern languages at key stage 3.
