Modern Foreign Languages

 

Modern Foreign Languages

We aim, through fortnightly sessions of French for each class, to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching, based on the Tout le Monde scheme of work, enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.

Importance is placed on children developing the confidence to practise their French conversation skills orally for example,  through games, drama and role play activities. Children then apply their knowledge through written work. Skills are taught, practised, embedded and repeated.

Mandarin is offered as a weekly club, taken by a Mandarin teacher from Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre.
