Modern Foreign Lanuages

In line with the National Curriculum, our children in Key Stage 2 take part in weekly French lessons.  Learning another language can improve memory, problem solving and critical thinking skills and lead to enhanced concentration and improved listening skills. 


Through fun activities, we give Balksbury children a great preparation for their language learning in Key Stage 3.  We use a structured programme of resources which grow the children's knowledge of the French language and enable them to use vocabulary to both express their own thoughts and respond to those of others. 


We believe that learning a language provides a great opportunity to develop learning skills not only in French but in English too.
