"Knowledge of languges is the doorway to wisdom"  (Roger Bacon)


French is taught to all KS2 pupils. The teaching of language to early learners is now widely recognised as a significant contributory factor in improving literacy, building self-confidence and broadening cultural horizons. Other benefits include gains in listening and speaking skills, appreciation of other cultures and enthusiasm for new forms of learning. 

The teaching of French provides excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning through life. Our French curriculum is designed to progressively develop children’s skills acquisition, and their ability to use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games
