• To develop our children’s linguistic competence.

  • To develop our children’s speaking, listening, comprehensions and writing skills through a variety of means.

We teach French to our pupils from Year 3 upwards. Our approach is to make a learning a new language fun! Pupils are very receptive to learning a new language; they like to mimic pronunciation and they can easily pick up and duplicate new sounds. They feel a real sense of accomplishment when they learn to say something new. Repetition and practice are essential in learning a new language so songs and games will be regularly used.
