“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages opens every door along the way. “ Franck Smith
At NPS we will enable pupils to learn French and develop an appreciation of how another language works in order to prepare them for a continuous learning experience by equipping them to appreciate and work in other countries.
Children will develop:
- a sense of belonging through providing an opening to the wider world; introducing the children to another culture to broaden their horizons; celebrating different languages and cultures by comparing their own to France; sharing their opinions and learning from others to become an active citizen.
- confidence in communicating by using their knowledge of phonology and grammatical structures; increasing their vocabulary; understanding and responding to others; providing opportunities for communicating ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing.
- a resilient attitude through being encouraged to take turns and listen to others; developing flexible strategies for encountering unknown language; discovering new ways of thinking and learning; fostering their curiosity as they deepen their understanding of the world.
