“There are doubtless many different languages in the world, and none is without meaning.”
Our mission statement:
“Learning French at the Revel provides the foundation for future language learning. Children will learn to develop their communication skills, to express their thoughts and ideas, and understand and respond to spoken and written French. Learning a language also gives children the opportunity to develop their curiosity and respect for another culture, and to listen to new voices.”
French lessons begin in Key Stage Two and the subject is taught in half termly blocks, alternating with music. Teachers use a range of resources, including Duolingo to support children's understanding of the language.

“My teacher helps you remember it because we do rhymes and songs and they get stuck in your head.” – Year 5 pupil
“I just like learning it!” – Year 3 pupil
