Learning a language enriches the curriculum - it provides excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children. It stimulates children's creativity and supports the development of their oracy and literacy skills as they take part in role play, conversations, singing songs and the asking and answering of questions. Learning a language also affords opportunities for children to explore their own cultural identity and the cultural identities of others.
At Loxley Primary School we have opted to give all of our children, including those at Key Stage One, the opportunity to study and learn French due to the expertise of staff in this widely-spoken, modern language. We also believe that the skills acquired through learning French should be transferrable to the learning of further languages later on, as we hope that our children will develop a lifelong love for learning languages that inspires them to travel and explore their world.
