The teaching of a foreign languages is compulsory at KS2. At Highcliffe Primary, we have successfully introduced the teaching of French. In EYFS and KS1, children are introduced to simple vocabulary, such as salutations, colours and numbers, and, in KS2, the “Studio” scheme of work is used as a core scheme, supplemented by other materials. This promotes transition to the use of this scheme at the local secondary school, to which most children transfer. Y6 children are offered the opportunity to attend a five day outdoor education/cultural visit to a Centre in Evron, France.
