Curriculum Intent- Languages

At Thornhill and Arlecdon Primary School we believe that children should have the chance to develop creatively and to express themselves in a variety of ways. We believe that children will enhance their lives by being able to communicate with users of other languages and being confident to explore the cultures of other countries around the world.

Our Early Years Curriculum enables children to explore and develop in knowledge and skill through themes. Languages are not expressly taught in the Early Years, however children are expected to know the following:

  • That there are a variety of languages spoken in the UK and around the world

We aim for all children to have the following skills and knowledge by the end of Key Stage One:

  • That there are a variety of languages spoken in the UK and around the world
  • To have heard people speak in another European language or World language

We aim for all children to have the following skills and knowledge by the end of Key stage Two:

  • Speak effectively in a foreign language, developing correct pronunciation and intonation when speaking so that they can greet users of that language and talk about  aspects of their lives
  • Understand a range of vocabulary and simple phrases
  • Communicate using writing to describe people, places and things, developing correct use of the spelling and grammar of the language being studied.
