At St Mary’s we teach French. We aim for our children to develop the skills needed to speak and understand the language so that they are efficient and confident in a wide range of contexts.
Our objectives include:
In KS2 French is taught by a specialist French teacher 30 minutes a week and followed up through-out the week by the class teacher using the ‘La Jolie Ronde’ scheme of work. In EYFS and KS1 French is taught each week by the class teacher and follows the ‘Little Languages’ scheme of work.
We provide opportunities to develop language skills further by hosting EYFS, KS1 and KS2 clubs. Early Years can participate in a 20 minute French club and KS1 a 30 minute club. KS2 have the opportunity to take part in one of three Latin clubs (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Classics).
