"To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world."
What does Language learning look like at St Bernadette’s?
It is our intent at St Bernadette’s to provide all of our children with a high-quality education in Languages, which develops their love of learning about other languages and cultures. Our current language taught is French. It is our intention to ensure that by the end of our children’s primary education, they have acquired an understanding of both spoken and written French, confidence to speak in French with others and know how important other languages can be in their future.
Our Languages curriculum is designed to develop not only our children’s language skills, but also their love of learning a language. It progressively develops language skills, through regularly taught lessons. This allows the children to acquire new language then use and apply it in a range of different scenarios and topics. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As their confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences.
