From this week, we have teamed up with Dragons Teaching – an e-learning platform that combines real-time online teaching with fun and interactive games – to deliver the MFL curriculum to KS2 students at all eight Wickersley Partnership Trust primary schools.
With all of our primary schools on board to get stuck into learning French, this makes it the largest curriculum programme that Dragons Teaching has ever done.
Dragon’s Teaching’s mission is to make learning a new language a fun, affordable and widely accessible experience. This flexible, inclusive, reliable and engaging model – which is built from its experience in high-quality teaching for over 15 years – means our schools (and other schools worldwide) can reap the rewards of learning a language.
“No matter the language or requirement, we can provide excellent teaching and a positive academy experience to foster a love of learning. That’s the Dragons Approach.”
Brinsworth Whitehill Primary School and Aston Hall Junior & Infant School were amongst the first in the Trust to start the programme.
Adam at Dragons Teaching commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with WPT to run our innovative FrenchConnect programme across all of the Trust’s primary schools. At Dragons Teaching we are committed to making language learning inspiring and fun through a combination of great teaching and interactive material, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to teach nearly 1000 children a week across the Trust.”
A big well done to our students who have adapted and settled into this new approach to learning – they’re doing some fantastic work so far and we can’t wait to see their language skills progress throughout this academic year.
