Modern Languages

 

Our aim is to develop the confidence and competence of each child in the languages they learn. Our goal is for them to be passionate, curious and confident about their own language learning abilities.The children will build a connection with the wider world through speech and culture. They will be encouraged to take risks in their learning thus inspiring them to have a ‘can do’ attitude.The children will have the opportunity to demonstrate their learning during a range of activities including ‘real-life’ situations such as whole school events.We will help them develop and demonstrate progress in the 5 key language skills necessary for learning Spanish and French:

  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Grammar
  • Culture

These skills will develop children’s ability to understand what they hear and read and enable them to express themselves in speech.We will extend their knowledge of how language works and explore the similarities and differences between the foreign language they are learning and English. We will also help strengthen their sense of identity through learning about culture in other countries and comparing it with their own.
