Welcome to Languages at Perton First School
We encourage our children to engage with other languages
Learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures. At Perton First School, we aim to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. We enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to spoken and written language. Our curriculum provides opportunities for children to communicate for practical purposes and learn new ways of thinking. Language teaching provides the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries or with people from other countries.

How are Languages taught at Perton First School?

Languages teaching officially begins when the children enter KS2. However, Languages are taught throughout Perton First School in a range of age appropriate ways.

 

In EYFS, the children are introduced to other cultures during assemblies which focus on up and coming celebrations or whole school projects, such as Diwali and Project Gambia.

 

In KS1, the children are encouraged to answer the register in a different language and respond appropriately to simple greetings.

 

In KS2, Languages is taught in a range of fun and engaging ways that encourage the children to speak with increasing confidence in another language.
