The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
- Speak with increased confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
- Can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
- Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied
The bedrock of the national curriculum is our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which has carefully prepared children for the learning journey ahead. Within a nurturing and play-based EYFS environment, children have learned basic and transferable skills; absorbed relevant knowledge and grown in maturity, as well as developing a thirst for learning. The details of your child's learning at this important stage and how it has prepared them for the jounrney ahead can be found below.
