Languages - French
At Kenton Bar Primary School, we understand and celebrate the importance of learning another language. Learning French contributes to the children’s understanding and respect for other cultures and helps them to gain empathy for how it feels for other children learning English.
In Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Languages and, through teaching French, we aim to:
- Provide an opening to other cultures
Encourage the children to become inquisitive learners
Develop children’s knowledge of the French language and their knowledge of France.
Enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language
Enable pupils to understand and respond to speakers of French, both in speech and in writing
Provide opportunities for pupils to communicate for practical purposes.
Language of the Half term
The children across the whole school are introduced to a range of languages over the year through our rolling programme of ‘Language of the Half Term’. Learning other languages contributes to the children’s understanding and respect for other cultures and helps them to gain empathy for how it feels for other children learning English.
Through exploring a range of resources, the children are encouraged to develop their understanding of other cultures and countries.
