Modern Foreign Languages

At English Martyrs we follow the national curriculum guidelines for modern foreign languages in KS2. All our KS2 children learn French  which is expertly delivered by classroom teachers supported at times by volunteer language specialists. We also have close links with a local secondary school who provides us with opportunities to work with pupil language leaders in German.

We embrace fully the opportunities to learn new languages through our pupils, a growing percentage of whom speak English as an additional language.

Last year our KS2 children learnt Silent Night in Spanish (Noche de Paz) and Mrs Topping Class had a chance to perform it at our Christmas Fair.  They sang beautifully! Thank you to Mrs Fernandez who worked so hard teaching the children.
