At Bishop Martin children from Year 3 to Year 6 receive a French lesson each week from a specialist language teacher. Children in KS1 and EYFS learn early speaking and listening skills with their class teacher through songs and games in French.
We believe that learning a second language boosts problem-solving, critical-thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multitask.
Throughout the school you will see signs in various languages including Spanish, French, German and English and teachers use French throughout the day to give simple classroom commands.
Language Angels is an online language programme that gives interactive games for our children to practise their French skills. All pupils at Bishop Martin have an individual login and your teacher will be able to view the games you have been playing.
