Modern Foreign Languages
We are really lucky to be able to offer both French and Spanish here at West Moors Middle. Pupils study French in years 5 and 6, giving them the basics of a European language before they move onto Spanish in year 7 and 8. Many pupils find that their French skills from year 5 and 6 really help them to manipulate the Spanish language in year 7 and 8.
In year 7 and 8, Spanish lessons are fun. The emphasis is on acquiring language to develop independence and confidence. Culture We believe in offering a cultural experience to all pupils. This is why we have links with both Spain and France. Pupils write letters to one another and improve their language skills.
We are also extremely lucky as when pupils reach year 7 and 8, they have the opportunity to meet their French pen pal when they visit the school. The pupils spend the day with their pen pal, attend a disco and some even participate in the keenly contested France v England football friendship cup!
