Hexham First School

Modern Foreign Languages

Children in Hexham First learn French in Years 3 and 4 using the Rigolo Scheme of Work.  They learn through using songs, games and quizzes, with the emphasis being firmly placed on listening to and speaking in French.

Children in Reception, Years 1 & 2 take part it fortnightly French assemblies led by Mrs Crow, who has lived and taught in France.  Every year all classes enjoy taking part in a whole school French day, with a French café and a range of French activities.

In addition to French children learn songs from around the world as part of our Singing Assemblies.  Children in Year 2 take part in an annual Swedish celebration of Sankta Lucia.  As part of the day they sing in Swedish with a choir from Sweden.

Hexham First has the International Schools Intermediate Award.
