Modern Foreign Languages
At Pomphlett, we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. Learning a modern foreign language is vital to becoming a global citizen, as it helps the learner to appreciate the language, culture, religion and people of another country; appreciating their similarities and differences.
In Key Stage 2, children at Pomphlett learn French through practical and interactive activities which develop their language skills and encourage them to find out more about the culture. Along with learning new topics, reinforcing knowledge every lesson is a key aspect of learning any language. We recap, revisit and give plenty of opportunity to practise vocabulary and phrases each lesson.
In the Early Years and Key Stage 1 we begin to learn language through songs and rhymes, giving children a taste of language learning. Children lead their own learning as they become curious about language and culture in other subjects and enjoy sharing this knowledge.
As part of language learning throughout the school we make sure that our topics contain elements of cultural and linguistic reference as we study different areas of the world, so that children are exposed to other languages and the wonderful diversity of our planet.
Earth Day 2021
As part of Earth Day 2021 the school learnt about ways to look after our planet while also celebrating the wonderful diversity on it. Each year group chose a different country and learnt all about the culture, language, food eaten and games played there. From Australia to The Netherlands, Mexico to Japan, the children had so much fun! Here are some photos...
Spain Day- 12th October
Hispanic Day (Día de la Hispanidad) or National Day (Fiesta Nacional de España) is an annual national public holiday in Spain celebrated on the 12th of October. Year 1 were very lucky to be given a presentation by Ignacio in 1M telling them all about Spain and how people celebrate this national holiday. ¡Muchas gracias Nacho!
