French

French is taught at every stage of the Pre-Prep curriculum.

The primary aim is to inspire a love for French in all our children. They receive approximately an hour and a half French tuition each week and lessons are playful in their approach, with a focus on singing, miming, games and role plays.

Our teachers, all French natives, encourage pupils to listen and repeat, helping them to speak with a clear French accent. They teach everyday language and cover areas such as personal greetings, numbers, days of the week, colours, clothes and food.

We expect that by PP3 (Year 3) the children will have a wide range of vocabulary and a good recognition of French words. Children also have the opportunity to display their language skills in termly French assemblies.
