RHS French GCSE Curriculum

Introduction

At RHS we follow the AQA GCSE which divides teaching into three broad themes, within each theme are a number of topics and subtopics.

These are the three broad themes:

  1. Identity and culture
  2. Local, national, international and global areas of interest
  3. Current and future study and employment

Our curriculum focuses on development of all four skills; reading, listening, speaking and writing, as well as translation from English to French and French to English.  We focus heavily on the development of the use of language spontaneously in speaking and in writing.  Our curriculum is planned to make learning engaging and relevant to our students and is based on the AQA published scheme of learning.

The outline of our curriculum below shows what we will cover and when we plan to do so, however this is flexible, depending on students’ responses to the topics and grammar we may spend more or less time on specific topic areas. Many areas of our GCSE curriculum are introduced at KS3, therefore some topic areas will require revision only.   The curriculum will ensure that students are fully prepared for success at GCSE and will equip students with relevant skills to take out and use in the wider world.

Teachers will use a range of resources to deliver the curriculum but each student will be given a copy of a textbook for use during the two year course.
