mfl (modern foreign languages)

French is our focus language here at Bickley, where children enjoy French lessons throughout KS2, with an emphasis on spoken French, leading to reading and then writing.                       

In KS1, French may be introduced informally in the form of spoken French, beginning to use some French vocabulary in daily classroom activities.

We also have "Le Club Francais" which runs on several lunchtimes throughout the school year, providing great continuity and  an opportunity for children in years 4, 5 and 6 to develop and consolidate their learning. For year 3 children, there is a staff-led club which runs at lunchtime during the summer term.

We are looking forward to theatre performances in the Autumn term, to be conducted fully in French!
