.Modern Foreign Languages Department
In September 2018 the Lower School at Newfield will be taught a modern language in addition to developing English.
The lower classes will opportunities to be taught about the culture and basic vocabulary of Spain, France and Germany.
At Key Stage 3 the pupils will continue to build on previous learning in French. However they also have the opportunity to access independent learning in a range of languages in lunchtime ICT club and in Golden Time.
The Governors have agreed to invest in an online learning platform called Linguascope which may also be accessed at home.
The pupils can log into the programme by typing in:

Please encourage your child to develop their skills. Even if they do not have the opportunity to use the language abroad just yet, they may do in the future. Learning a language develops memory skills which then can transfer to other subjects.
