Bromstone Primary School


Bromstone Primary school offers a relevant, broad, vibrant and fun foreign language curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils using a wide range of topics and themes relevant to them. We believe that through high quality language teaching and learning, our students can develop an understanding of the world around them. This will hopefully lead them to have a love of language and cultures. We chose to teach French due to our proximity to France.  

Learning foreign languages is compulsory for all children in KS2, so all children have weekly lessons starting in Year 3.  At Bromstone we chose to introduce some informal learning in the years before this. We use singing or simple story-telling, teach counting, colours and greetings in French, starting in Reception.  We follow the Language Angels scheme as it is the most dynamic and accessible for our pupils. During these lessons, pupils are given the four key language skills; listening, speaking, reading and writing. All of these skills are taught in age-appropriate ways, including games, role-play and interactive activities.  

We have French vocabulary displayed throughout the classrooms and school corridor showing the vocabulary they are currently learning. We show and celebrate pupils' French work throughout the terms.  

Children leave Bromstone with an understanding of France, its language and its culture. Our specific curriculum guides children and teachers on their learning journey from the basics to complex conversations, preparing them for their language lessons in secondary school. Our long-term aim is to have pupils feel willing, able and confident to continue studying language beyond Key Stage 2 and becoming life-long language learners.

You can also ask your child's teacher for the Language Angels login details. You can download the app, and they can practice the vocabulary they have learnt during their lessons at school.
