Children are taught French for one hour every two weeks. Year 3 and 4 develop their French skills by speaking and listening, while years 5 and 6 continue to speak and listen and begin to develop reading and writing skills. There are many sources of support for French available via the internet. Please see the links below.
Memrise: an app available for android, mac and computer. Excellent and free!
Duolingo: a free App for learning languages. Excellent, Free!
Further support for learning is available through a vast library of free software on the London Grid for Learning.
All children have access to the London Grid for Learning by logging into the site and entering their school login details at the login screen. Simply type my.uso.im into your search bar, press enter and enter the login details at the appropriate screen. Login details are normally pasted into homework diaries in year 3. All other year groups should be very familiar with their own details.
