Wigton Moor

Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!



At primary school pupils are not expected to learn a language in Key Stage 1.  In Key Stage 2 the national curriculum stimulates that:

"Teaching may be of any modern or ancient foreign language and should focus on enabling pupils to make substantial progress in one language."

At Wigton Moor we have chosen to teach French.

Our teaching provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language.  We try to make lessons fun and engaging so that we foster a love of learning and a desire to learn another language.  We aim for our teaching to lay the foundations for further foreign language learning at high school, even if this is not French.


Each year our Year 6 pupils host a French themed day.  This day allows pupils to practise their 'real life' French.  See below for some photos of our pupils enjoying their day.
