At Hayes, we have a Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Teacher taking classes every Thursday and Friday afternoon. French is taught to all pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. We aim to show progression over four years in listening, speaking, reading and writing, with a specific focus on grammar and pronunciation.
We praise ourselves in ensuring that children have a very good Intercultural Understanding which is inbuilt in the planning in the foreign language lessons and other curriculum areas.For instance we hold a French themed day every year where the Infant and Junior School children get together. This year the children will be celebrating French Bastille Day in the summer term.
A free lunchtime French Club is also running through the year for Reception, Y1 and Y2 children on a termly basis.
