From September 2014, the government has stated that teaching a modern foreign language will be compulsory in KS2. At Sneinton C of E Primary we believe that it is very important for children to gain an understanding of the skills involved in learning a new language, therefore all of our children aged 7 – 11 are already learning to speak French.
The lessons are taught in a fun, practical way using a variety of songs and games to help the children to learn new language. The language taught is also displayed in each classroom and around the school.
French lessons are timetabled for each KS2 class on a weekly basis and during these lesson children learn to speak, read and write basic French. Recently we have established a link with a school in Nantes, France and this helps to provide opportunities children to learn about France and French culture.
