Modern Foreign Languages

 

We offer weekly French lessons to all pupils in Year 3 to 6. It is our aim that the children will be able to speak French with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.

By the time children have reached Year 6 they should begin to write simple sentences in French with an emerging knowledge of the grammar of the language. At St Osmund’s we believe that in Modern Britain, learners need to embrace the languages of other countries. We cannot expect everyone to be able to speak English.
