At St Philip’s Primary School, we teach French in Key Stage 2.
As a multi-cultural society, learning a foreign language is an important aspect for young learners to gain knowledge about other cultures. Learning a new language enables children to deepen their understanding and gain an insight of the different languages that are spoken around the world. We teach children skills that will allow them to express their ideas through speaking and writing. Children are encouraged to participate in all activities and to use the correct pronunciation when being taught French.
Our intent is for children to be able to use their skills in order to be confident, to explore and appreciate other countries, culture and languages and to encourage them to communicate effectively with others.
