In our school, we believe it is important to respect and celebrate one another’s languages. Throughout the year, we learn a different focus Language of the Month. Our children learn some key words and phrases and have the chance to share their own knowledge about the chosen language.
Here is the link to the Language of the Month website, where you can enjoy exploring different languages with your child at home.
The chosen focus language in our school is French which is taught throughout Key Stage 2 in timetabled sessions.
The topics we are covering this year are; Greetings, Numbers 1-30, What’s your age? What’s the date? Classroom instructions, Colours, Animals, Family and Alphabet.
We provide children with a range of opportunties to use their French Language and extend their cultural understanding. This year we have had a French workshop day which involved a performance and a sequence of workshops from the Caboodle company. We are also working closely with Stratford Secondary school to provide opportunties for their French specialist teacher to work with our children and teachers. We will also be holding a French Day in Summer Term 2 which will be very exciting!
