• express and develop pupil thoughts and ideas spontaneously and fluently
• allow pupils to listen to and understand clearly articulated, standard speech at near normal speed
• deepen their knowledge about how language works and enrich their vocabulary to increase their independent use and understanding of extended language in a range of contexts
• develop awareness and understanding of the culture and identity of the countries and communities where French is spoken
Homework will be set once per week and will consist of a range of activities:
• ICT based learning.
• Vocabulary learning.
• Workbook exercises – reading comprehension, written work. • Preparing Speaking material for examination.
