Modern Foreign Languages
¡Hola! Bonjour! At Westmeads, all children in Key Stage 1 learn a foreign language. In Year 1, the children learn French and in Year 2, Spanish. The lessons teach a range of vocabulary and grammar using songs, games and ICT.
Through the teaching of these lessons we aim to develop children’s speaking and listening skills, foster an early interest in learning another language and help them understand cultural differences in other countries.
In French Club we apply the language we have learned in class to games and conversations. The children have the opportunity to practise vocabulary in smaller groups and use ICT to help them practise and improve their language skills.
