At St Peter and St Paul Church Primary School we use the Language Angels scheme of work and supporting resources to ensure that we provide a relevant, broad and ambitious foreign languages curriculum that will inspire our pupils and lead to them developing the necessary knowledge and skills to become confident language learners.
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 the primary phase. This will enable pupils to use and apply their learning in a variety of contexts, laying down solid foundations for future language learning and also helping the children improve overall attainment in other subject areas. In addition, the children will be taught how to look up and research language they are unsure of and they will have a bank of reference materials to help them with their spoken and written tasks going forward. This bank of reference materials will develop into a reference library to help pupils recall and build on previous knowledge throughout their primary school language learning journey.
Our aim is that all pupils will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating. Learning a second language will also offer our 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.
At St Peter and St Paul Church Primary School we want to ensure that our pupils leave Key Stage 2 working towards becoming life-long language learners.
