Learning
Respect is at the heart of our school.

Languages

Intent

The intent is that all pupils at Pembury Primary School will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating. Learning a second language will also offer pupils the opportunity to explore relationships between language and identity, develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them with a better awareness of self, others and cultural differences. The intention is that they will be working towards becoming life-long language learners.

Implementation

Our curriculum is informed by the National Curriculum. As a school, we have chosen French as our language of study in KS2. At Pembury Primary School we use the Language Angels scheme of work and resources to ensure we offer a relevant, broad, vibrant and ambitious foreign languages curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils using a wide variety of topics and themes.

The four key language learning skills; listening, speaking, reading and writing will be taught and all necessary grammar will be covered in an age-appropriate way across KS2. This will enable pupils to use and apply their learning in a variety of contexts, laying down solid foundations for future language learning.

Impact

Children will:

  • Be able to understand and communicate in another language.
  • Develop enthusiasm for language learning.
  • Develop language skills and language learning skills.
  • Be confident in interacting with others.
  • Have an increased global awareness.
  • Have an interest in different cultures and lifestyles.
  • Have a good understanding of themselves and their culture.
  • Have a sound start for further development at Key Stage 3 and beyond.
