We believe that every child should have the opportunity throughout Key Stage 2 to study a Modern Foreign Language to enable children to learn about, and foster an interest in, another language and culture - other than their own. This will enable them to develop personal qualities, skills, knowledge and understanding, make a major contribution to their communication and literacy skills and raise awareness of other cultures through intercultural understanding. At Aldwyn, the children will learn French. There are additional opportunities to learn other languages in after school clubs.
Pupils in year 5 and 6 have been learning about clothes in French and have been making their own version of the French book 'Je m'habille et . . . je te croque' by Benedicte Guettier. The children thought of ways in which they could improve the story and decided to add adjectives to describe the clothes (colours, size etc) and change the animal from a werewolf to an animal of their choice.
The pupils then spent an afternoon sharing their books with pupils in year 1 and 2.
We had lots of fun and are looking forward to sharing our work with other pupils soon!
