At Hawley French is the modern foreign language that is taught.
French is the mother tongue of our language teacher, whose role will increase as the school expands. French will be taught throughout the year in all classes from Year 3 to Year 6. Year 2 pupils have an introductory term of French during their final term in Year 2. During that term they are taught rhymes, songs and simple phrases, which enable them to begin to acquire some vocabulary and familiarity with the language.
Our aim is to offer the children an increasing range of opportunities and contexts in which to speak in French as their skills progress.
