Modern Foreign Languages
We aim to develop children’s experience of language acquisition and encourage curiosity about languages. We hope to extend their understanding of how language works using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary and explore the differences between French and English. Through purposeful and meaningful learning we aim to strengthen their curiosity, ability to problem solve and recognise their sense of identity through learning about different cultures and countries, comparing it with their own. Language learning supports and celebrates the international dimension. Cross-curricular teaching gives children the opportunity to access and apply their knowledge throughout their learning. Southmead Primary School is in partnership with Picasso Primary School in Chateaubernard, France, and as a result we aim to provide each child with experiences, learning and opportunities that go beyond their time at school.
