Poppy's story for distance learning

Todd le Dino

C’était mercredi 13 mai, il faisait très chaud et donc Todd le dinosaure a décidé d’aller à la plage. Todd le dinosaure est très petit, joyeux et sympathique. Il aime les aventures et la création de tanières! Il va à la boutique de glaces. Il achète une grosse glace, pépite de chocolat à la menthe! Il n’aime pas la glace à la framboise. Il  adore sa journée à la plage.

Languages at Linton Heights


Welcome to the languages page of the Linton Heights website. At Linton Heights all the pupils learn French. It is taught by a primary languages specialist, Madame Kelly.



Purpose of study


Learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.




The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:


  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources

  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation

  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt

  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
