"Achieving Success by Learning Together"

Primary Languages

 

Our chosen language to learn at Key Stage 2 is French.  All children have Primary Languages lessons from Year 3 to Year 6.  We currently use Rigolo to support our teaching and currently hold the Bronze Linguamarque award for the quality of our languages teaching.

Children have the opportunity to practice their French speaking, reading and writing in practical situations and role play and through whole class events like a French Cafe and our Celebration of Languages days.  We also visit Newmarket Academy and join language classes led by secondary school specialist teachers.

The learning of languages is also an informal part of teaching and learning lower down the school where children are encouraged to share home languages and learn a few words of French.
