Languages

  Bienvenue! Willkommen! Welcome to our languages page.  

 

In KS2 all children learn French from years 3 – 5 and in year 6, to broaden their knowledge of languages, children learn German. 

To make language learning fun and interactive we enjoy singing songs, using actions and playing lots of games using vocabulary linked to topics such as ‘my family’, ‘school’ and ‘the weather.’ 

In year 3 we have an immersive approach to languages through repeated story telling, movement, song and gesture to build familiarity with the language. Each half term we wear our French jackets and learn to retell a different story about two ‘Dinocrocs’ called Hocus and Lotus. If you are a parent / carer of a year 3 child, please ask them about the Dinocrocs - Hocus and Lotus.  They may be able to retell some of a story, using French they have acquired.  

In each year group we build skills in speaking, listening, reading, writing and intercultural understanding. Here are some of the fun activities we have been doing including writing pen pal letters, mini books and Christmas cards, performing role plays, using QR codes, language apps and exploring culture.
