FRENCH

'To learn a language is to have more than one window from which to look at the world'

Chinese Proverb

 

 

Why We Teach Your Child French:

 

Learning another language has many benefits for both the individual and the wider community.  It helps to break down social barriers and encourages cross-cultural understanding, as well as helping the individual to boost their problem solving, memory, critical thinking and listening skills. Being able to speak a second language can even help improve understanding of areas such as grammar in their native language. 

 

The French  Curriculum will:

  • foster an interest in language learning by introducing children to other languages in a way that is enjoyable and accessible to all pupils
  • stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language and creativity in experimenting with it
  • support oracy and literacy, and in particular develop speaking and listening skills
  • help children develop their awareness of cultural similarities and differences
  • lay the foundations for future language study by pupils
  • provide an added perspective on first language teaching and learning
  • give an extra dimension to teaching and learning across the curriculum.
