Cedars Curriculum Statement


At Cedars Primary School, teaching and learning is based upon a language rich themed curriculum where pupils are exposed to a range of experiences to enhance their knowledge, understanding and long term memory. As a result, pupils at Cedars are confident, aspirational, articulate learners who are ready for the next stage of education.


Today, Monday 21st February, is International Mother Languages Day.

We have so many amazing children and staff in our school who can speak many different languages.

Speaking another language is something to be so proud of so celebrate your fantastic brain and tongue and keep practising the languages that you know.

Reading for Language Lovers

There is now a selection of French story books in your reading area. Although you may not understand all the words, there are some wonderful illustrations to help you to understand what is happening in the story.  Also some of the words are cognates.  This means that the word looks the same or nearly the same as the English word.


Go ahead and challenge yourself to read something different! 

Remember it is French Date Day on Tuesday. Take a sneak peek at the slideshow to learn how to say the date.

The next French Date Day will be in the Spring Term.  In the meantime why not try to learn the French months to be ready for the next French Competition?

Year 4 have been learning the conjunction ou (or).  They have been answering questions linked to their work on animals. C'est un poisson ou un lion?

Y3 have been learning some imperative verbs. Here they are practising Regardez! and Levez le doigt! We always use gestures to help the words stick in our memory.

Year 6 have been revising the days of the week and learning a song. They have been learning actions to go with the days of the week so that the words stick in their memory - lundi (on knees), mardi (clap hands), mercredi ( fold arms), jeudi (hands on shoulders), vendredi (hands over ears), samedi (finger on nose), dimanche (hands on head). They have been learning the i sound that goes at the end of the days of week. Do a big smile and say i! Interestingly, the French days of the week don't need a capital letter.

European Day of Languages September 26th 2019

During Class Worship we focussed on thinking about peace in Europe and the whole world.  The infants watched Peppa Pig International Day as a treat and some of the junior classes watched it in French. Year 3 learnt some sign language along with a song for the Sing Together Project.  

Year 5 have been learning how to ask and answer questions in French. They have been linking this to places in a town. They played a game to help the questions and answers stick in their memory.
