Modern Foreign Languages
At Normanton Junior Academy we consider languages to be an integral part of the curriculum as it exposes our children to different cultures and languages. All children learn French on a weekly basis in PPA sessions by a French specialist. Lessons are taught through repetition of the language, short games and often through song. There are 4 aspects to learning a language; reading, writing, speaking and listening. Every lesson incorporates these aspects in a fun and engaging way for the children. Scroll below to see us at work and to read about some of the great Modern Foreign Languages opportunities at Normanton Junior Academy.
