Greenmeadow Primary School

INTENT


Through the study of a foreign language, children understand and appreciate different countries, cultures, people and communities - and as they do so, begin to think of themselves as citizens of the world as well as of the United Kingdom.

At Greenmeadow, languages are taught, primarily, through listening and speaking.  We aim to give children an understanding of what it means to learn a new language and the purpose of that learning.  We give pupils a basic foundation in French. Pupils learn basic vocabulary and the grammar that is necessary to communicate through both spoken and written language. They explore the similarities and differences between French and English.
