Children at West Lodge enjoy French and are able to see the relevance in French. They feel safe enough to take risks, embrace challenge and develop their knowledge of languages. At West Lodge children are given opportunities to express themselves creatively in French and to gain enjoyment and a sense of achievement. French at West Lodge prepares children to explore their own cultural identities and those of others and apply strategies to improve their learning. The children are taught French in Years 3 to 5.
In Year 6 they get the opportunity to learn Mandarin, through our partnership with Pinner High School.
