Bonjour et bienvenue ! (Hello and welcome!)
It has been proven that learning a new language opens our minds to other cultures and enables us to communicate ideas more confidently, which is why MFL holds an important place within the Parkhill Curriculum. French is taught throughout the school and we are currently very lucky to have our own resident linguist, Mademoiselle Karine, who is a native speaker and teaches every year group for 30-45 minutes per week! She keeps the children on their toes (literally!) and gives them the opportunity to engage in conversations often. To support the French learning, we have also introduced French Word of the Week to allow the children to become familiar with words and phrases. It opens up another avenue for the children to investigate and develop an interest.
