“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.” – Nelson Mandela
Learning a foreign language is a crucial part of being a member of a multi-cultural society and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality language education should open up the children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.
It is our intent that in the Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) curriculum here at Conifers Primary School we are supporting and exposing the children and giving them opportunities to foster their curiosity and a deeper understanding of the world in general. We believe that learning to understand, speak, read and write in another language during Key Stage 2 will provide the basis for learning other languages, which will in turn provide important opportunities for future study and work in other countries. In our school, we teach French using the Primary languages Network Programme. - - - (read more)
