Languages at Park Hill focus on enabling children to express themselves with confidence and competence.
Children learn French from Nursery, and continue learning the language for the rest of the time they are at Park Hill. Equal emphasis is given to the four skills (reading, writing, oral and listening) so that oral fluency is combined with grammatical accuracy.
We teach Latin from Year 3. We believe it provides a particularly appropriate challenge to our children, who enjoy the challenge of something different and intellectually demanding, They love making links between Latin and other languages, and further fostering this intellectual curiosity is advantageous as they progress to their next school at 11.
