At Chartham, we aim to promote the enjoyment of learning a language and we enjoy celebrating cultural differences and similarities. We also aim to prepare children for further language learning when they go to secondary school and beyond! Our chosen language is French which we learn from year 1 onwards.
We currently have links with an Italian school and children in key stage 2 have been writing to our penpals there.
French club is going well and we really enjoyed their production of Handa's Tale last term. We look forward to our Mardi Gras celebration assembly on Friday 3rd March 2017 where children will be parading the masks that they have made and there will be prizes and certificates too!

It was great to see Ladybird class practise some of their French in their assembly. Year 1 have enjoyed reading stories in French( Le navet enorme and le fermier dans son pre) and acting them out. We had a lot of fun!
