Bonjour, at Garlinge Primary School and Nursery we believe that learning a foreign language gives all children a valuable educational, social and cultural experience.
Our focus language is French and the children experience a range of teaching and learning activities using the Salut! scheme of work. Children have the opportunity to speak, listen to, read and write in French. They explore the foundations of the language and the grammar systems behind it.
The children also have the opportunity to gain an understanding of French life and culture through days such as the European Day of Languages.
We hope this introduction to learning a new language enthuses our children to learn more and varied languages and visit other countries as they grow older.
