Level 1, 2, 3 or 4 French

The benefits of studying Primary French

Our Primary French homeschooling course covers the French requirements of the Key Stage 2 English National Curriculum over the course of four years.

Primary Level French is a fun, interactive course, which will allow your child to not only learn a new language, but also to learn about the French culture. Most will begin on Level 1 in order to ensure that they become confident, well rounded linguists. But if your child can already speak and understand some French, they may start with Level 2 or 3.

We are pleased to be able to offer Wolsey Hall students the opportunity to book 1:1 tuition in Primary French, with a focus on speaking and listening in French. Each session lasts 20 minutes. This session will be with one of our French tutors via video call. Please note that this is an additional paid service.

Learning another language gives children a new perspective on the world. It develops a deeper understanding of their own cultures and those of others. It extends their knowledge of how language works, and it helps them to develop communication skills, including those of speaking and listening.

The Wolsey Hall approach to reading and phonics is especially well designed. Wolsey approaches learning letter sounds in “layers”. This has made it possible for our daughter to learn to read in a matter of weeks without being overwhelmed. We find it remarkable that our 4 year old daughter is reading small books all on her own with confidence and enjoying it very much.

Zacharias really wants to read. He keeps showing up with books pointing at words and letters. He also starts writing by himself things he names. Like his famous dinosaurs. It isn’t the correct spelling, but he gets closer and closer to it. Something we as parents have been waiting for a long time. Once he can read and write, the world is his.

My daughter’s reading has improved so much, that I’m amazed daily how well she can read. I really like the way the course is designed to teach phonics and graphemes. It gives my daughter confidence to try herself to write new words. She does not ask me anymore for help.
