Modern Foreign Language
French is the modern foreign language studied by all children in the Pershore High School Pyramid, of which we are a part. We begin French Studies in Year 5.
The emphasis is on active involvement by the pupils in all aspects of the language.
Children engage in a variety of linguistic activities, helping them to learn the skills needed to access all modern languages. Pupils have the opportunity to experience authentic reading materials, as well as watching French news. As children develop their listening and speaking skills, more reading and writing tasks are introduced to promote a greater understanding and confidence of the language in all forms.
A residential visit to France is organised on a regular basis so that pupils may gain practical experience of its language and culture.
