All children learn French in our school, with formal lessons starting weekly in Key Stage 2. The French curriculum is planned to promote enjoyment, participation and the confidence to speak with accurate pronunciation.
Careful planning of the French teaching programme ensures progression so that the children are well prepared for their transition to secondary school. We follow the scheme 'Rigolo' and use other supplementary materials to deliver the curriculum. Every pupil at KS2 is able to reflect on their learning through specific targets each term.
We regularly hold focus events such as a French Breakfast and other international events.
We offer Spanish as an extra-curricular activity once a week, led by a professional tutor.
We also offer a lunch-time Latin Club led by the languages subject leader for Y5 and 6 pupils. We follow the Cambridge University 'Minimus' scheme for this.
