At Wigton Moor Primary School, we believe learning a language enriches the curriculum, providing excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life.
The language that we have chosen to teach is French.
Our teaching provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language. We try to make lessons fun and engaging so that we foster a love of learning and a desire to learn another language. We aim for our teaching to lay the foundations for further foreign language learning at high school, even if this is not French.
Children in KS2 are able to explain how learning a language gives us 'liberation from insularity' enabling a wider view of the world as well as developing linguistic skills for the future.
