French is taught across all KS2 classes at our school. The following schemes of work ensure that the children’s learning progresses year after year and that they attain well meeting the standards expected of them in the MFL section of the National Curriculum.

Usually all French lessons begin with some fun French singing – this part of the lesson has had to be postponed due to Covid.



Chantez Plus Fort!

Is a scheme of work containing 20 easy-to-learn French songs. Whilst enjoying the songs children broaden their vocabulary and hone their listening skills and pronunciation.


The songs introduce and reinforce key vocabulary for popular topics, such as:

  • greetings
  • names and ages
  • time, days of the week, and months
  • shapes, colours and sizes
  • family and pets
  • food and drink
  • classroom items
  • weather

Early Start 1 & 2 is used in year groups 3-4

The ES 1 scheme of work and its films help young beginners enjoy their first steps in Primary French and finding out about everyday life in France.


ES 2 is a continuation scheme of work building on the language children have previously learned which helps stretch and extend young learners.  They find out more about culture in France and how it is similar/different to their own.





Hocus and Lotus is used in year groups 5-6

Hocus and Lotus is a scheme of work based on a series of mini cartoons about 2 dinosaurs who are learning about modern day France. In each cartoon, Hocus and Lotus experience fantastic and exciting adventures that teach them new vocabulary and aspects of everyday French culture. The children in class learn along with them through the narratives told and they are expected to answer questions about, read short extracts on and listen and speak about their adventures.

Hocus and Lotus provides children with a context for their learning whereas Early Start provides children with a basic vocabulary upon which to build their understanding of a context upon.



The children at All Saints love their lessons in French as they cater for all learning styles and they achieve well in terms of National Curriculum expectations.
