French

Year 6 French

Year 6 French curriculum consolidates all learning done in the Prep section of the school and builds on the foundation gained in Years 3-5. It challenges pupils to expand their vocabulary as well as use of grammar to aid their transition into Year 7 and the challenges of secondary school curriculum. Boys will cover a range of topics supported with cultural understanding of target language countries. In the summer term, the boys will take part in the annual Prep Languages Day, which is a long-standing school tradition and a great celebration of languages and cultures.
