Foreign Language

We believe it is important to enable pupils to have opportunities to experience different languages so that they can use the skills that they have learnt to build confidence and self esteem in learning languages. The children in KS1 sing songs in French, giving them exposure to vocabulary. Spanish is taught in year 3/4 following the  scheme of work which sets out the key vocabulary and phrases to be learnt each term. The language is taught through songs, games and picture books. Pupils in year 5/6 learn German. The main focus is on developing confidence in language learning through the acquisition of listening and speaking skills. Children also have the opportunity to take part in a lunchtime language club.
