At Summerseat Methodist Primary School we want our children and their families to develop positive attitudes towards other languages and cultures. We believe that learning a Modern Foreign Language will open doors to our children’s futures; equipping them with a life-long practical skill, and that their language learning at Primary School will provide them with the building blocks for learning languages at High School. Through our teaching and learning in French, we aim to foster children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of how the English language works as they compare it to French. The focus on speaking, listening and practical games and activities which lead into reading and writing encourages a deeper level of engagement and enjoyment for all pupils, whilst strengthening their communication skills in a positive and supportive environment. We also place great importance on the development of pupils’ knowledge and understanding of French culture.
