French and Classics

Languages Curriculum Overview

French Learning Overview (5&6)

Years 3 and 4 study Latin through the Classics for All programme. 

French has been the main foreign language taught at SASM since 2006. As the national curriculum says, “learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures.” 

Our country has always been internationally engaged and we need the language skills to go with that. SASM children receive a solid grounding in using a foreign language and feel the pleasure and joy that it brings, as well as the curiosity and global awareness it fosters. From 2019, French is taught only in Years 5 and 6.

Celebrating Other languages

We also celebrate the wonderful diversity of pupils at SASM, and organise for children to investigate and celebrate the cultures and nationalities of their classmates. One pupil commented that: “I was surprised but it made me happy to see how interested my friends are in where I come from and what it’s like.”
