Languages at Shavington
Modern Foreign Languages
At Shavington, we are proud to offer French as part of your child's languages programme of study. It is predominantly taught as a seperate subject.
French is taught in all year groups throughout the school, with a wide range of topics covered. Learning a second language from a young age has proven extremely effective. Our aim is that by the time our children leave in Year 6, they will have mastered basic French conversation, and be fully prepared for their language learning in secondary school.
Our aim, which is at the heart of the programme of study for KS2, is to develop an enthusiastic and positive attitude to other languages and language learning. We hope to encourage a life-long love of language learning among our pupils in order to enhance their understanding of the world and their future economic well-being.
Some classrooms will have French words and displays. Items, objects and furniture are all abelled around the school.
