At St. Clare’s we believe that learning a modern foreign language within the primary setting is a vital part of children’s learning which helps to prepare pupils for their secondary education. Learning a language has an important role to play in the preparation of children’s future as it helps to develop confidence, raise cultural understanding and develop their geographical awareness.
Language learning at St. Clare’s deepens children’s’ curiosity about the world around them and fosters their sense of exploration. All KS2 children (Year 3-6) are provided with opportunities to explore French as a Modern Foreign Language through the major skills: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.
Our Foreign Language Teacher delivers lessons which are diverse and fun, to excite and engage children in language learning. A range of resources and teaching styles are used to showcase the creativity and diversity of languages.
Our aim is to provide our pupils with a sense of awe about the word in which they live and how learning a language can broaden horizons allowing “their light to shine.”
