Through the learning of another language, we aim to foster our children’s curiosity about the world around them and the cultures of other people.
At Reedings, we have the privilege of having a native French speaking teacher who alongside teaching of the French language, also introduces the children to the culture and geography of France.
The learning of French language at our school, begins with speaking, reading and writing of basic greetings and vocabulary, such as colours and animals. This knowledge is built upon as children move into upper Key Stage two, looking at various themes such as food and drink, shopping and weather.
Children have the opportunity to use French during a variety of theme days linked to French traditions and celebrations for example: Chandeleur day was a great opportunity for children to use their French to order a crêpe and celebrate the festival of light.
