All children in KS1 have a 30 minute Spanish lesson each week during which they learn basic words and phrases through songs, stories, finger rhymes and games.
In KS2 all children have a weekly French lesson of 45 minutes. Children learn through interactive role-plays, songs, stories and games as well as reading and writing activities. Topics covered include how to order food and drink in a café, asking your way around town, buying ice creams and other general conversations they might need to communicate with others.
Children are also given opportunities to regularly communicate with French children in our link school through SKYPE and email. The introduction of ipads has provided many more opportunites to learn French in an exciting way. Year 6s have written their own ebooks and created puppet shows all in French.
