At Singlewell Primary School, we care about the teaching and learning of French. Being immersed into other languages and cultures is of paramount importance in our society today.
At Singlewell, we aim to develop children’s cultural understanding and curiosity of the world around them, as well as celebrating the equality and differences that other cultures have to offer. All children are provided with opportunities to explore French as a Modern Foreign Language through the skills of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing, whilst meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum.
During French lessons, the children will be encouraged to show resilience when communicating for practical purposes, learning new ways of thinking and when reading great literature in the original language. Language teaching will provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping children to study and work in other countries safely.
It is intended that when children leave Singlewell Primary, they will have a natural curiosity and ambition to explore other countries, cultures and languages, accepting that, in a multi-lingual society, it is a valuable skill to be able to communicate effectively with others in another language. They will be engaged and prepared to continue language learning at Secondary School.
