Languages

    Pupils learn Spanish throughout their time at St Christopher's, with dedicated lessons each week. From Reception to Year 3 they also have integrated Mandarin lessons in small groups and as a class. In upper key stage two, they begin Latin for Years 5 and 6. 

    We also offer an after school French club from Reception to Year 6. Languages are taught in an interactive manner, focusing on speaking and building confidence. The girls prepare role-plays in Spanish, learn English grammar through Latin and absorb elements of Chinese culture through music, arts and crafts in Mandarin. Authentic material and languages websites are used to develop learning, enthusiasm and enjoyment.
