Foreign Language at Prince Edward

  • Pupils at Prince Edward Primary study French in Key Stage 2. The Governors at Prince Edward value the importance of a foreign language, the uses it will have on our pupils’ lives and how it will make them better citizens of the world. As a result, our pupils will only ever receive the best foreign language teaching. Every Key Stage 2 child will be taught for one session a week by a specialist French teacher provided by Lingotot. The pupils love it. 

    Our French teacher is Monsieur Jacques Barthelemy. He provides carefully planned sessions and build confidence in the pupils through:

    • songs
    • stories
    • drama
    • kinaesthetic activities
    • speaking
    • listening
    • reading
    • writing
