“Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.”
Flora Lewis

French At Clapagte

French is taught at Clapgate in Key Stage 2, so children in years 3 – 6 will learn French. Learning another language can have huge benefits to children’s memory, their problem solving skills and their understanding of the world, as well as being fun! A good knowledge of French will also support the learning of other languages if children go on to study other languages at high school.
