Modern Foreign Languages
Children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We encourage children’s confidence and creative skills; and strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language. We help them develop an awareness of cultural differences through the study of language and other countries. Skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills necessary to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning are embedded within a well-structured curriculum.
The teaching of French within The Warriner Multi Academy Trust provides excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning through life. Each school's French curriculum is designed to progressively develop children’s knowledge acquisition, and their ability to use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences.
