MFL

Language learning is a skill that is vital for the globalized world of the 21st century, enabling us to communicate with others thus breaking down barriers and in turn decreasing interracial tolerance.Through songs, games, practical and fun activities, we aim to ignite curiosity and develop a lifelong interest in language learning, exposing children to a wide range of different languages (including BSL) throughout their time at Preston. In KS2, children will be given opportunities to acquire and develop language skills with increasing confidence and competence, with French being the language chosen to be taught in depth. Through such teaching children will also learn about different cultures, awakening their interest in other people and developing a broader intercultural understanding. As they move onto secondary education, children will have a better understanding of their role as a global citizen. They will have an enthusiastic and positive attitude towards languages and be keen to continue their journey of language learning.
