BARLBY HIGH SCHOOL IS PART OF

French

Curriculum aim

Language skills are vital for our country and particularly for our students who are destined to become our future workforce. However, learning a language is not only important for the world of work, it is also a wonderful life-enriching skill which gives you confidence to travel and explore the world. At Barlby we offer French to Year 7, building on knowledge they have gained in primary school. This continues into Year 8, so that at the end of KS 3 they are able to make clear and informed choices about learning languages in KS4. Our students can study GCSE French in Years 9, 10 and 11, using a lively and relevant curriculum appropriate for today’s young people.

Key stage 3 Curriculum overview

Skills are developed, cultural awareness increased and knowledge gained through various topics. Key objectives include listening and interpreting detail and tone, reading different text types and producing writing that builds vocabulary and structure. We also focus on speaking and developing social and expressive techniques. This is all underpinned by grammar and accuracy, emphasising high frequency words and tenses.

GCSE French

At KS4, students study for AQA GCSE French. The course is 100% examination and includes four exams. At KS4, the specification covers three main themes: identity and culture; local, national and international areas of interest; and future studies and employment. All three include a focus on the four language learning skills, reading, writing, speaking and listening. Sub topics include holidays, the world of social media and cultural activities.
