LOTE - French

LOTE is one of the specialist subjects offered as part of Deepdene Primary School's curriculum. The language taught is French.

All children across the school attend a 50 minute session of French per week. The emphasis is on spoken French although children are exposed to all facets of the language including reading and writing. The children are spoken to and encouraged to respond in French.

As part of learning French children are given an insight into the culture and customs of France.

Learning another language reinforces the understanding children have of their own language.
