Networks with other schools.


We have very strong links with the language department at High Tunstall and like to visit them, in September, to celebrate European Day of Languages.

Quotes from the children



“We all liked spelling the French words and cracking the codes.  We liked naming the family in French.  We liked counting in French.  We liked colouring in all French body parts.  We really enjoyed doing the months in French”  Year 3.


“I like French because we learn a new language and if I visit France, I will be able to talk to the people who live there.”  Dillon Hubble Year 4


“I like using Salut because it’s fun but educational as well.  We can play games to help us learn new words and phrases.  If we don’t get our pronunciation right the first time, we can listen to it again as many times as we need.”   Freja Cooke Year 4


‘I really like learning French at school because my grandad went to France for a year and it helped me to practise more.’ Jack Bolton Year 5


‘I love learning about how different French is to English and finding the words that are alike.’ – Layden Wyness Year 5


“I love the songs because they are chatty and fun to sing!” Ava Robins Year 6


“The games are fun and really child friendly.  We all love the prizes you get.” Travis Jobling Year 6
