At Osbaldwick Primary Academy, we pride ourselves in being a multicultural school and use this as a learning opportunity for the children. Learning about different countries and cultures helps to prepare children for their life in the global community. We aim to engage and inspire children to have a love of learning about the world.
At Osbaldwick Primary Academy, we teach language learning skills with a focus on French. In Early Years and Key Stage 1, French is introduced through songs and games to get the children excited about the language. In Key Stage 2, French is taught once weekly to children giving them the key skills necessary to take the language further in their Secondary Education. Language is taught little and often, and opportunities are taken by staff members to encourage children to practise the language throughout the week.
