The National Curriculum states that all children aged 7-11 should have the entitlement to learn a foreign language at school. At Northwick Manor Primary School we teach French throughout Key Stage 2.
The emphasis is on oral work, songs, games, vocabulary building and role play - with a gradual increase of written work by the end of key stage 2.
We are currently developing a link with a primary school in Reims which we hope to extend in the future.
Year 6 pupils have the option of experiencing a 5 day residential trip near Paris. It is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn more about the French culture and to try out their language skills on real live French people!
