I want the children to get inspired when learning a new foreign language.When learning the new language the children will gain so much from it,They will find out all about the different cultures in France as well as experiencing international days where there will be food tasting ,french games and music. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.

I have started teaching the basics to ks1 to encourage the use of a new language and this has been a fantastic start for ks1 pupils.Which will continue in to ks2.
Here at Millfield our children in Key Stage two all study the French language and culture. We have chosen this language after discussion with local secondary schools. We are pleased that the children will leave their key stage two education with a solid understanding of a language they can then continue to study to an even higher level at Key Stage three.
