Safety, Learning, Respect- our three key values. Arlecdon primary School is proud to be part of the West lakes Multi-Academy Trust

Languages

Key Stage Two children are learning French in School, we use a structured programme, to ensure pupils cover the key learning to have basic skills by the time they leave Primary Education. The focus is on speaking and listening and developing an interest in other languages but pupils are encouraged to write in French and construct their own sentences. As part of this, we learn about the culture and history of French speaking countries.

 

Curriculum Intent

 

At Thornhill and Arlecdon Primary School we believe that children should have the chance to develop creatively and to express themselves in a variety of ways. We believe that children will enhance their lives by being able to communicate with users of other languages and being confident to explore the cultures of other countries around the world.

Our Early Years Curriculum enables children to explore and develop in knowledge and skill through themes. Languages are not expressly taught in the Early Years, however children are expected to know the following:

  • That there are a variety of languages spoken in the UK and around the world

We aim for all children to have the following skills and knowledge by the end of Key Stage One:

  • That there are a variety of languages spoken in the UK and around the world
  • To have heard people speak in another European language or World language

We aim for all children to have the following skills and knowledge by the end of Key stage Two:

  • Speak effectively in a foreign language, developing correct pronunciation and intonation when speaking so that they can greet users of that language, talk about our school, and express what they like and dislike.
  • Understand a range of vocabulary and simple phrases relating to greetings, school life and likes and dislikes, when listening or reading.
  • Communicate using writing to describe people, places and things, developing correct use of the spelling and grammar of the language being studied.
