All students study French throughout their time here at Oldfields Hall. They benefit from two subject specialist teachers who work closely with other schools in the pyramid to ensure consistency to aid transition, both from first schools to Oldfields Hall, and then from Oldfields Hall to High School. The schemes of work are designed to build confidence, whilst supporting students and allowing them to develop in all four skill areas; Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
Year 5 and Year 6 have one hour a week of French, taught in mixed ability form groups. In Year 5, we cover topics such as colours, numbers, fruit, expressing likes and dislikes, animals and musical instruments. In Year 6, we move on to look at school subjects, describing family members, hobbies and talking about where we live. In Year 6, we also start to look at the present tense and how to form it in French.
