At Widney Junior School, we intend for all children to develop positive attitudes towards other languages and cultures. This interest should be encouraged by being given regular stimulating and enjoyable lessons which build confidence and promote the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. It is our intention to ensure that by the end of Year 6, our children have acquired an understanding of both spoken and written French, confidence to speak in French with others and know how important other languages can be in their future.
Widney employ a specialist French teacher to teach weekly lessons with all year groups. Lessons are based on the Twinkle Scheme of Work and adapted to suit the needs of the children at Widney.
