Key Stage 1
The teaching focuses on spoken with an introduction to written language and lays the foundations for further foreign language teaching. It enables pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech, focused on familiar and routine matters, using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary. Its focus is practical communication.
Pupils will be taught to:
Begin to have a basic understanding of grammar appropriate to the language being studied, including (where relevant): feminine, masculine and neuter forms and the conjugation of high-frequency verbs; key features and patterns of the language; how to apply these, for instance, to build sentences; and how these differ from or are similar to English.
