Celebrating Languages -

Latin & French

 We are a very diverse school linguistically!  A majority of our pupils are bilingual or multilingual.  We work hard to build on this and celebrate this diversity, whilst also giving pupils who are monolingual, a solid grounding for learning a new language.  In Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) we celebrate languages spoken by children, giving them the opportunity to share their home languages with their classes.  In Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) we have introduced Latin.  Year 5 and 6 are continuing with French, but this will be phased out to include Latin in the full Key Stage 2.

French - Year 5 and 6

We are proud to include French in our curriculum for UKS2 (Years 5&6).  Year 5 and Year 6 continue this until they leave.

We are finalising our French Curriculum overview for the website.  We will upload it soon.

Latin - Year 3 and 4

This year we are also very proud to have also introduced Latin to our curriculum for Years 3&4.  After extensive research and seeking advice, and on discussion with the staff, governors and parents, we felt that Latin offers a strong basis for understanding words, spelling and grammar in English as well as supporting our History curriculum.  Latin also offers children a basis for all Romatic languages they may take in secondary school.    Lessons have started this term for Year 3 and Year 4.  It is a new addition which we are very proud of.  The Latin curriculum uses the Minimus scheme as a basis.  https://www.minimuslatin.co.uk/
