At Norwood Primary we enjoy learning German throughout Key stage 2. The emphasis is on speaking and listening through games, songs and role play and then beginning to write and learn some basic grammar rules.
Throughout the year, children have the opportunity to attend a weekly languages club where they learn about the language and culture including special events in the year. This year, we are delighted to be able to offer a French club in the Spring term and a Mandarin club in the Summer term.
In September the whole school celebrates World Day of Languages when each class has a fun filled day of activities learning about a chosen language and the countries where it is spoken. The children share their new found knowledge and language skills at a special assembly.
We hope that by learning a modern foreign language at Primary school, children will be better equipped to continue with their language learning when they move on to Secondary education.
