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. 

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. As part of language learning 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. 

In Key Stage One 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.
