At Weston Rhyn Primary School we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for pupils. Pupils develop communication and literacy skills that lay the foundation for future language learning. They develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities between the foreign language (French, in our case) and English. Learning another language raises awareness of our multi-lingual and multi-cultural world and introduces an international dimension to children’s learning, giving them an insight into their own culture and that of others.
Our children are lucky to have a secondary French teacher who delivers a high quality French language curriculum to our Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to 6) children.
