In KS2 Years 3-6 all have weekly lessons to develop their understanding and use of another language – French. These lessons are formed around La Jolie Rond and take place in a variety of forms – including speaking, listening, games, written work and projects.
At St Thomas More Catholic Primary School we value the benefits of learning another language and also celebrate the diversity of other languages, including that of those of our child who speak additional languages by also completing daily tasks in a variety of languages including taking the register or greeting one another.
For further detail on how these topics will be taught please visit the relevant class page and read all about the French learning this term on the most recent class newsletter.
European Day of Languages
Each year we have a European Day of Languages. This is a chance for us to learn about lots of different countries and learn new languages. We get to learn at least 4 new languages each time. Each classroom becomes a new country – we dance, create art pieces, speak and so much more.
Pates Language Festival
In previous years we have attended a Language Festival at Pates Grammar School. This gives the children an opportunity to be exposed to more languages and learn about countries in different ways. This could be through artwork, drama and speaking and listening.
