French

The ability to understand and communicate in other languages is an important part of living in a diverse society.

In Years 1 and 2, a specialist teacher delivers French in an interactive style, using songs, games, flashcards, real objects, puppets and French storybooks.

Pupils in Year 1 are offered French twice per week, in two 20-minute sessions. In Year 2, the subject is part of the timetable for 35 minutes per week .

By the time they leave Year 2, the children have a good grounding in basic spoken French vocabulary and structures, an excellent preparation for greater demands in the Preparatory School.
