Foreign Language Curriculum
At Fringford C of E Primary, we believe that learning
another language gives children a new and broader perspective on the world,
encouraging them to understand their own culture and those of others. Learning
a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to
other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’
curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. They should be able to
express their ideas and thoughts in another language whilst understanding, and
responding to, its speakers, both in speech and in writing. We intend to
provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new
ways of thinking and read in the original language. We hope that, by learning a
language, our children will be inspired to learn further languages thereby
equipping them with the means to widen their horizons, leading, in the future,
to study and work in other countries.
