All children at Bishop Monkton are taught French. In Reception and Year 1/Year2 it is covered in class by the class teacher and teaching assistant. From Year 3 upwards children benefit from having a French specialist teacher. Children enjoy learning French through a variety of songs, games and spoken language, incorporating the North Yorkshire scheme of work. As the children progress through school they also learn to read and write in French. Year 4/5 children have an opportunity to visit France on a three day residential visit. This provides a rich experience for putting their learning in to context.
