From Easter 2017, children are taught French from Reception class through to Year 6. The school also offers Spanish as an extra-curricular club in KS2 children. From time to time German may be offered as a lunchtime club to KS1 children.
We aim to develop children’s experience of language acquisition and encourage curiosity about languages. The children will develop their understanding of what they hear and read, and improve their ability to express themselves in speech and writing. They will extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences between other languages and English. The children will also strengthen their sense of identity through learning about culture in other countries and comparing it with their own culture.
