Reception pupils are introduced to the conventions of the French language through a host of songs that they are delighted to perform. In Years 1 and 2 pupils play games, sing songs, practise role-play and write simple phrases, all with the aim of fostering a love of the language.
In Prep School children continue to strengthen their speaking and listening but we also focus on developing more complex structures when reading and writing in French. In Years 5 and 6 we use a range of resources to help build upon and consolidate their increasing vocabulary and grammar knowledge. Pupils are also now able to use technology to record themselves to assess and reflect on their spoken language skills.
Every year we plan some exciting events. For example: European Languages Week, French Day or inviting in a French theatre company.
