Modern Foreign Language - French


We at New Islington Free School believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for the pupils and as such we are keen to promote a Foreign Language to all pupils of primary age.

Our chosen language is French and it is taught from Year 3 to 6 using the Primary French Project materials. This project brings together three organisations (Institut français du Royaume Uni (IFRU), ALL – The Association for Language Learning, Network for Languages) for the purpose of supporting primary schools wishing to effectively teach French as part of the new statutory curriculum.

This approach uses videos, songs, rhymes and stories to enrich pupils’ experience with insights into other people’s lives, equipping children to express themselves in new ways.
