We believe that giving children the chance to learn a language allows them to gain insights into their own lives and those of others around the world, it promotes a wider cultural understanding and also improves all language and literacy skills.
French is our chosen language throughout Foundation Stage 2 and Key Stage 1; In Key Stage 2 the children learn Spanish. We strive to give the children a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards learning a new language. Modern Foreign Languages are taught in weekly sessions where we use a range of fun, interactive and multi-sensory approaches such as songs, action rhymes, games and stories.
The children are introduced to both the written and spoken language early on and are encouraged to communicate effectively in a secure and supportive environment.
