French - Kapow!

At Southfields Primary School, we believe that the learning of a modern language provides valuable edicational, social and cultural experiences for our pupils.  It nurtures pupils' self-esteem and self-confidence; develops strong interpersonal skills; improves children's understanding of the English language whilst encouraging positive attitudes to foreign languages and different cultures.

The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all  


  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources 

  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation 

  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt 

  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

At Southfields, we use Kapow to teach French. It has creative and engaging lessons that enthuse pupils to get involved. The lesson progression covers the following skills:
