Foreign Language

The images and videos below provide a snapshot of the impact of our Foreign Language curriculum in Key Stage 2.

In the autumn term, Year 3 listened to the story ‘Gute Nacht Gorilla’, as part of their greetings and animals topic. They practised acting out the story, read it to each other and then read it together as a class.

In the spring term, Year 3 Pupils worked in groups to plan a performance of a number poem they had been studying. Some said a line by themselves and some wanted to speak with others.

Pupils in Year 4 investigated Hillingdon’s Twin Town, Schleswig, and designed their own leaflets about different places in the town with simple sentences to describe the pictures.


After having read, listened to and watched different versions of the Grimm’s fairytale, ‘The Musicians of Bremen’, our Year 5 pupils performed plays of the story to another class.

All of our Year 6 pupils entered the Oxford German Olympiad, run by the German Network at Oxford University. They investigated the topic of Karneval in Basel, researched traditional costumes, designed their own and then used the bilingual dictionaries to find the vocabulary to label them. We had one age category winner, 6 highly commended and 4 commended. We are VERY proud of our students’ hard work.
