At Martello, we aim to promote the enjoyment of learning a language as well as fostering an interest in finding out about the world and its diversity. We want our pupils to be equipped for future language learning in secondary school and beyond!
On a clear day, our pupils can see France from our location by the sea in Folkestone, which makes learning French as a primary language even more relevant!
We use "Language Angels" as a basis to deliver French lessons to our pupils in KS2 which exposes them to the skills of reading, listening, speaking and writing in another language. Through rhymes, songs, games and other engaging activities, pupils are able to build on their understanding of the French language, and increase their confidence whilst extending their social and cultural knowledge and communication skills.
