At Fosse Bank School children start learning French as soon as they enter Kindergarten – the earlier the better!
We strongly believe in learning through having fun! Children in Kindergarten and Reception learn to speak confidently and have a good understanding of spoken French using games, puppets, songs and stories. Children from Year 1 upwards start using the interactive whiteboard programme we subscribe to called Language Angels, where they are gradually introduced to the 5 key language skills necessary for learning French: Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing and Grammar.
By the time they leave Fosse Bank School, they should have a strong foundation of knowledge of French for secondary school and have become passionate, curious and confident about their own foreign language learning abilities. They will know how a language works and have explored similarities and differences between English and French and strengthened their sense of identity through learning about other cultures and comparing it with their own.
