Modern Languages

We all know that exposing children to other languages at an early age helps their cognitive development.

At Queen Edith we believe that by learning a foreign language from Year 3, children can also understand English grammar and its vocabulary more deeply, while at the same time being exposed to a new culture.

Our children are very excited about learning French through games, songs and mini conversations.

French is taught once a week . After each new topic, the children transfer what they have learnt into a personalised booklet that stays with them from Year 3 to Year 6, so that they can keep consolidating their knowledge.

Yearly Overview

The table below outlines the key topic areas taught in French lessons each term:
