What makes an effective Languages student at Weston?

Children will have a natural curiosity and confidence to explore, other countries, cultures and languages, accepting that, in a multi-lingual society it is a valuable skill to be able to communicate effectively with others in another language.  They will be engaged and prepared to continue language learning at High School.

About Languages

At Weston Primary School we believe learning a new language is a normal part of child’s education. We teach children French as part of their primary education, this includes learning the language and understanding all about French culture.

Our aim is to see pupils leave our school in Year 6 with the ability to: understand and respond to spoken and written language; speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity; write at varying length; and to discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in French.

Emilie visits us once a week to teach across the school in KS2, but KS1 also experience some language learning through themed days or celebration events like European Day of Languages.
