At Dent the modern foreign language that we focus on is French. We teach French across KS2 through discrete lessons. Pupils are currently split into Year 3&4 and Year 5&6 classes for French lessons.

Our French curriculum, based on the broad themes of self, family, food, school, time and place, provides an introduction to the culture of French-speaking countries and communities, and aims to foster children’s curiosity and help deepen their understanding of the world, giving them opportunities to grow into curious, confident and reflective language learners and providing them with a foundation that will equip them for further language studies.
