Foreign Languages

Children in Key Stage 2 (Year 3-Year 6) learn French as their foreign language.

Why do children at primary school learn a foreign language?

  1. ‘The younger the better’ –  children are intrinsically better language learners, and will become more proficient more quickly.
  2. In an increasingly globalised world  it is important to awaken children’s interests in other people and cultures at a time when they are open and receptive.

We teach French in a fun way, teaching children the key vocabulary they will need in order to have conversations in France with confidence.

We follow the Foreign Languages National Curriculum Programme of Study
