At Arnold Mill, our chosen modern foreign language is French. Children are introduced to the language in Key Stage 1 through stories, songs, rhymes and games. Activities are linked to the class topics wherever possible.
Throughout Key Stage 2, pupils have one lesson of French per week. They work on speaking, listening, reading and writing as well as exploring the culture and traditions of France. Learning is organised into specific topics for each year group and the acquisition of language skills builds throughout the key stage. Children are introduced to French phonics and sound spellings in order to help them connect spoken and written words accurately.
