From September 2014 it became compulsory for Primary age children to learn a modern foreign language. The skills of learning a language are very useful and transferable, which means learning any language will be by the knowledge gained through learning French at Park.
At Park, we have weekly French lessons where the children learn vocabulary and French grammar rules through practical activities and games. At Park we follow the Salut! scheme of work which enables children to learn a wide range of vocabulary which relates to everyday subjects. It allows the children to practise their speaking, listening, reading and at times their written skills. Alongside the language teaching children are exposed to different aspects of French culture and also some of the geography of France. In each lesson children will get to play games to help them consolidate their new learning and will listen to and join in with a French story or song.
