Modern Foreign Languages
Children at Goodrich have weekly lessons in Mandarin Chinese, delivered by a teacher from The London Confucius Institute. Over the course of these lessons, they develop a broad range of useful vocabulary and phrases, conversational Mandarin and experience and understanding of Chinese culture. The organisation also provides Kung-Fu and Chinese Dance teachers who work with different classes in KS2 at different times. This working relationship is now well established, stretching back several years, during which time Goodrich children have even been on visits to China alongside school and Institute staff.
