Modern Foreign Languages

Here at Woodlands Primary School we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for pupils.  Our children are lucky to belong to a school in which a large number of pupils come from homes where languages other than English are spoken. We celebrate these differences and encourage our children to talk to each other about their own cultural identities.

Our curriculum allows pupils to develop their 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 foreign languages and English.  

Learning new languages raises awareness of our multi-lingual and multi-cultural world, and introduces an international dimension to pupil’s learning.  The learning of a foreign language provides a medium for cross-curricular links and for reinforcement of knowledge, skills and understanding developed in other subjects.
