Welcome to our school website.

Modern Foreign Languages - French

In our school, we value all languages and encourage children to share their home language with us. From Year 3 through to Year 6, we then begin to learn French. Learning a modern foreign language enables the children to develop new skills and confidence; it promotes initiative and broadens their understanding of the world and diversity within society.

We use Rigolo, a fun and interactive learning tool, to engage the children in learning the basic vocabulary and everyday phrases. Below is an overview of the units that your child will be learning in school.
