Modern Foreign Languages

French is taught to every child in Key Stage Two.
Teaching of vocabulary is based on the 4 R's - recognition, repetition, recall and real use, so children are gradually introduced to new language and as they feel more confident they start to use it in real life contexts. Songs and games are also a key feature of French teaching.
The aim is to make sure that by the time the children go to secondary school they have a good knowledge of everyday French vocabulary, are able to conduct simple conversations, and can recognise and understand features of the language that might differ to English. This year we have been lucky to have a native French teacher from the Perse School and some of their A Level students coming in to help with French teaching.
