At St Louis Catholic Primary School, we aim to foster inquisitiveness into Modern Foreign Languages. Through deepening pupils’ understanding of language and culture of other countries they can widen their understanding of the world. Language teaching provides the foundation of learning further languages, equipping pupils with the necessary skills and knowledge to study and work in other countries. Weaving through all of our Modern Foreign Languages teaching, is a commitment to enhancing and promoting our Catholic ethos and values.

We teach French from Year 3 to Year 6. A variety of teaching techniques are used to encourage pupils to have an active engagement in languages, such as; games, role play, action songs, stories. Whenever possible we will invite native speakers into the classroom to provide an excellent model of the spoken language as well as to enhance their cultural understanding. Each year we will plan a whole school ‘International Day’. This will be an incredible enrichment opportunity for all pupils to immerse themselves into the language, culture and traditions of countries from around the world.

Through Language Learning we aim to:

  • To nurture an interest in learning other languages.
  • To give pupils a positive, enthusiastic attitude to languages within a creative and multicultural environment.
  • To introduce language learning in a way that is fun and enjoyable.
  • To stimulate and encourage pupils’ curiosity about language.
  • For pupils to develop an awareness of language structure and that the structure differs from on language to another.
  • To develop pupils’ speaking and listening skills.
  • To lay the foundations for future study.
