At Ravensworth Terrace we value the benefit of foreign languages and we aim to provide the opportunity for children to learn French in a stimulating and engaging way. French is delivered through a variety of games, music and speaking and listening exercises, ensuring that lessons are memorable and enjoyable. By immersing pupils in both the language and culture of France, we intend to inspire our children to engage fully in learning.
Each term, our Key Stage 2 children will learn new skills from a variety of French topics. This will equip them with the confidence and knowledge to begin to read, write and converse in a foreign language. It is crucial we are able to foster a positive attitude toward languages from a young age. Therefore, we endeavour to encourage a love of French so that our pupils can become lifelong learners who will continue to improve their language skills as they grow up.
Our Key Stage 2 children also have the opportunity to engage in a Languages after school club. The club focusses on consolidating work that the children have been doing in French lessons but also introduces the children to Spanish, as an alternative language. The Languages club makes learning French and Spanish fun by using lots of games, interactive activities and providing opportunities for the children to practise their speaking and listening skills.
