At Short Heath Junior School, every child throughout the school from Year 3 to Year 6 has the opportunity to study French as our chosen modern foreign language. It is widely believed that the early acquisition of a foreign language facilitates the learning of other foreign languages later in life and as such we are providing our pupils with the tools and skills required to do this. We follow the language learning scheme from Rachel Hawkes - see below for our curriculum overview.
