French at Prestbury
The teaching of languages to early leaners is now widely recognised as a significant contributory factor in improving literacy, building self-confidence and broadening cultural horizons. There are clear benefits in terms of gains in listening and speaking skills, appreciation of other cultures and enthusiasm for new forms of learning.
We have recently reviewed our provision in this area. The challenge is providing quality input in a 'crowded' curriculum. One of the outcomes of the review was to state clearly what we want children to know by the end of KS1 and by the end of KS2. We have put this in this section of the Learning Platform so that you as parents are fully and able to support your child. Please see the document titled French planning, at the top left-hand side of this page.
