French: F–10 Sequence / Foundation to Level 2 / Understanding / Systems of language
Content description
Recognise and reproduce the sounds and rhythms of spoken French, noticing how they are produced and how they are represented in words and symbols
  1. building phonic awareness by recognising and experimenting with sounds and rhythms, focusing on those that are novel and initially difficult such as u (tu), r (très rapide) and -ion (attention!)
  2. listening closely to distinguish between sounds such as bon, bien and beau or chien, chat and champ
  3. understanding that intonation patterns create different meanings, as in the distinction between statements, questions and exclamations (Tu as six ans. Tu as six ans? Tu as six ans!)
  4. developing pronunciation, phrasing and intonation skills by singing, reciting and repeating words and phrases in context
  5. becoming familiar with the French alphabet, noticing similarities and differences to English, for example, double-v, i-grec, and the possible confusion between g and j
