French is the Modern Foreign Language that is taught here at Ravensmead Primary School. Although it is only statutory within Key Stage 2 for an additional language to be taught, children further down the school are exposed to French (not on a weekly timetabled basis) but at some time during the academic year.

The school follows a programme called ‘Rigolo’. This comes in two programmes: 1 and 2.

‘Rigolo 1’ is followed by children in Year 3 and 4 and ‘Rigolo 2’ is followed by children in Year 5 and 6.

The children are exposed to a variety of units within this resource; looking at simple things from: numbers, colours, greetings and school equipment to the culture at a French school; about town; items of clothing; the food and drink; on holiday; forms of transport and much more.

In addition to this 1 hour a week of French within Key Stage 2, within the school year a day is organised where the entire school look at some aspect of French life.

Children thoroughly enjoy discovering new facts about the French culture here at Ravensmead.
