Modern Foreign Languages

As the UK is becoming an increasingly multi-cultural society, we have a duty to provide our children with an understanding of other cultures and languages. At St Martin and St Mary C of E Primary school we do this by teaching the children French as a modern Foreign Language. The skills, knowledge and understanding gained through learning another language also helps children to develop a better understanding of their own language.

Children in KS2 take an active part in French lessons every week. They join in with singing, reading, writing and responding to stories. They also experience the opportunity to listen to native French speakers, create mimes, sketches and role-play, imitating accurate pronunciation and intonation. They play games and experiment creatively with language.
