MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES
The children study French at Roydon primary academy following the Rigolo programme of study. With Rigolo, we follow the amazing adventures of Jake, Polly and Bof as they discover France through lively interactions and colourful stories.
Teaching a modern foreign language in primary school offers several benefits. Firstly, it promotes cognitive development, enhancing memory, problem-solving, and multitasking skills. Learning a second language, like French, also fosters cultural awareness and appreciation from an early age, promoting global citizenship. Additionally, studies suggest that bilingualism positively impacts academic achievement and can even enhance performance in other subjects. Teaching French in primary school not only prepares students for future language learning but also opens doors to diverse career opportunities in our interconnected world.
