The Gleddings Preparatory School What Our Parents Say

"Thank you for teaching and looking after Harry so well. He enjoys coming to school so much and I feel confident that he is very well cared for." - Mrs Crabtree

French

French should be fun!

Throughout the school, French lessons (which start in Form II at the age of 6) are full of singing, dancing, role-play, games, stories and drama. Spoken French is used as much as possible in lessons, and all children are encouraged to 'have a go' in a relaxed and non-threatening atmosphere.

Reading and writing in French are introduced gradually, but the spoken word always comes first, and importance is attached to helping the children develop a good French accent.

Pupils learn about aspects of French culture, particularly through our link with a primary school in Lyon. Each class has a twin class in the French school and, in year 6, pupils write and email to individual pen friends.
