 Modern Foreign Languages 

Once your child reaches Key Stage Two, they will have the exciting opportunity of learning French. This page gives you an idea of some of the areas your child will learn. You may like to have a look with your child at some of the words. 

Learning another language is great for a child’s confidence and also helps them with other areas of their work. Speaking another language is also really helpful in many areas of work.
