Modern Foreign Languages
In Key Stage 2 at Perranporth School, we teach an hour of French each week. Learning a language increases cultural awareness by learning about different countries and theirpeople, fostering positive attitudes towards foreign language learning. We aim to form a sound basis for further study at key stage 3 and beyond. Through the Inspire Curriculum, the children become increasingly familiar with the sound and written form of French which closely links to our topic based themes of work. We use songs, games and visual prompts to engage the children in learning French in a fun and active way.
