Children leave Stella Maris with strong foundations for learning different languages. They enjoy learning a different language and they will show respect and curiosity for different cultures across the world.
Children have had opportunities to listen to stories and songs in French, so they can hear the patterns and sounds of the language, helping them develop their own pronunciation.
By the end of KS2 children are able to do the following:
- Understand the difference in culture and be curious about others
- Understand and sing songs in French accompanied by actions to words
- Take part in role play and engage in simple conversations
- Understand basic French grammar and some of the ways it differs from English.
They are well equipped to start further study of languages at Secondary School.
