This is one of the first units where previously learnt language will be integrated with newly acquired language, encouraging all children to use their growing bank of vocabulary. In this unit, children focus on asking questions as well as providing accurate replies. They will demonstrate a growing understanding of grammar to manipulate language and start to create sentences of their own using a range of personal details including name, age, where they live and nationality.
Unit 4: My Family

Children will start to integrate previously learnt language with newly acquired language, encouraging more confident use of their growing bank of vocabulary. Children will demonstrate an increasing knowledge of grammar and the use of the possessive in French to manipulate language, thus starting to create more personalised responses as the unit supports the change from 1st person singular to 3rd person singular
Unit 5: In the Classroom
- By the end of this unit, children will have the knowledge and skills to present both orally and in written form about what they have and do not have in their pencil cases and/or school bag in French. This is a unit that focuses on recycling previously learnt grammar, using it with new vocabulary and a better understanding of the negative form, demonstrating a growing ability to create independent responses.
Unit 6: Romans
- Through the medium of this familiar period of history, children will be taught the skills to understand slightly longer and more complicated text in French. Children will learn to ‘gist’ read, listen and understand more by using cognates and more familiar language to decode unknown language. This unit ties in with literacy, promoting a deeper understanding of the role of verbs, nouns, determiners and adjectives in sentences. This unit links strongly to transferable literacy skills.
