Languages

 

Our rationale for Modern Foreign Languages (MFL):

Learning a language enriches the curriculum.  It provides excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life.  The natural links between languages and other areas of the curriculum can enhance the overall teaching and learning experience.  The skills, knowledge and understanding gained can make a major contribution to the development of children’s oracy and literacy and to their understanding of their own culture/s and those of others.  The focus language taught in our school will be French.
 
Our curriculum aims to foster an interest in languages by introducing them to children, and by encouraging curiosity and experimenting with the language. We also aim to help children understand the language in the context of the culture, learning the skills of comparison and contrasting cultures, languages, and skills in speaking and listening.
