As the UK is becoming an increasingly multicultural society, we have a duty to provide our children with an understanding of other cultures and languages. With growing foreign economies and more global communication than ever before, languages are becoming a crucial skill for professionals.
At The Churchill School we believe strongly in the benefit of this and have therefore implemented the teaching of French for all KS1 and KS2 children from Year 1 to Year 6.
Learning a language enriches the curriculum, providing excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life.
The natural links between languages and other areas of the curriculum can enhance the overall teaching and learning experience.

Teaching and learning styles and procedures
At The Churchill School we will use a variety of teaching and learning styles in our lessons. Our principal aim is to develop children’s knowledge, skills, and understanding.
Since this September lessons are being taught throughout the school by specialist teachers who have language degrees and a good understanding of grammatical structures.
Children have the opportunity to support their work with a variety of resources and lessons aim to be active, fun and practical so that children will make significant progress throughout their time at The Churchill School.
Our main language is French as we are so close to France geographically but year 6 children will be given some experience of other languages through our partnership with the Harvey Grammar schools language students.
