For anyone not sure how to report to parents here is an example from a school in Devon. I hope thy enter the Primary language awards this autumn, they look like worthy competitors.
MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGE CURRICULUM REPORT FOR PARENTS
French continues to be taught weekly by Mrs Holding in Easdon, Shapley,
Mardon and Butterdon.
This term the children will be hosting a visit from a parent who is a native
German speaker. A native French speaker has already visited and took an
active part in some French sessions. The children enjoyed sharing an
afternoon with two visiting children from France this term.
The twinning link with Betton has provided a great opportunity for the children
to develop their cultural understanding and the purpose of learning French.
There has been the opportunity to correspond with the Betton children, giving
a real purpose to writing French. The more able Year 6 linguists have been
required to write more fully and act as a role model in terms of eg accent for
the other children.
The school’s assessment procedures have been developed and regular
assessment is now made on the three strands in the Framework for oracy,
literacy and intercultural understanding. This ensures that the children’s
learning is meeting their particular needs.
For the next academic year, the school plans to:
Develop its teaching of French phonics through a new resource called Take 10 Phonics
Continue to strengthen the link with Betton and use this as a meaningful learning resource.
