Key Stage 3

During KS3 at Royal Wootton Bassett Academy pupils will study one of either French, German or Spanish. Through this, we hope that pupils
will learn to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people. They will also gain insight into their own culture and society.
Pupils will cover a range of topics, which will enable them to gain a greater confidence in expressing themselves in the target language. The
content and detail for what is covered in each term will vary according to set, allowing for greater challenge or consolidation where
required.

Key Stage 4

French

The GCSE course in French develops to a higher level the four skill areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students work for the
main part in the foreign language, developing both their fluency and their knowledge of vocabulary and language structure. They deal with
up-to-date spoken and written materials, using video and the internet. The course enables students to communicate in the spoken and
written language in a variety of contexts, which relate both to their own experiences and to those of people in the countries where the
language is spoken.
