Upper Key Stage 2

Our Learning in Upper Key Stage 2


Early Start 2 builds on the simple language children have learned already to stretch and extend their existing linguistic skills.  Early Start 2 continues helping children to find out about real everyday life and culture in France.  A full course suitable for years 5 and 6, Early Start covers all the main areas of UKS2 primary French through a DVD resource using native speaker children in their own homes and schools. Most films will be recorded in Northern French towns giving learners a further incentive to go and visit the North of France.  The vocabulary is introduced slowly and clearly and leads to easily implemented verbal work but also fun and challenging written activities.
