At Manor we believe the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for the pupils. From year 3 onwards our children learn French.
This school aims to:
To develop pupils’ communication and literacy skills that lay the foundation for future language learning.
To develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities between the target language and English.
To enhance pupils’ awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world and introduce an international dimension to pupils’ learning, giving them an insight into their own culture and those of others.
To provide a medium for cross-curricular links and for reinforcement of knowledge, skills and understanding developed in other subjects.
Foster positive attitudes towards foreign language learning.
Form a sound basis for further study at Key Stage 3 and beyond.
