In Willowcroft this year we are excited to announce that all of Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2 will be learning French. This will give all children an opportunity to get to know one language really well and therefore be confident in MFL for their transition to secondary school.
In Key Stage 1 children will be learning basic French with Mrs Hargreaves. They will achieve this through singing songs and storytelling. In Key Stage 2 the children build on their earlier experiences. Previously learnt language is revised and consolidated as new vocabulary and grammatical structures are introduced. Listening skills are developed and there is more focus on correct pronunciation and intonation when speaking. Reading and writing activities are gradually introduced. In addition to language skills, pupils gain an awareness of different countries and cultures. Key Stage 2 children will be taught French by Miss Brown, Mrs Dodgson and Mrs Hargreaves.
Come and join in with German club on a Tuesday afternoon with Mrs Dodgson and Mrs Hargreaves. Children who already attend German club are having lots of fun learning a new language. Well done, Keep it up!
