French KS3

 

Modern foreign languages are an important part of the KS3 curriculum because not only do they develop key employment skills such as communication, problem solving and attention to detail, they also contribute to other important skills such as working with others, improving own learning, plus numeracy and literacy across the curriculum. Studying a foreign language therefore specifically supports English by teaching things such as grammar and sentence construction and covers the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Students study either French or Spanish in Years 7 to 9 and students have two lessons per week. At the end of year 9 students may opt for either French or Spanish.
