Languages Curriculum Intent
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.
We measure the impact of the Languages curriculum through continuous assessments during our lessons to see what the children have understood and which areas of the Languages curriculum they may need more support with. The impact of the Languages curriculum can also be seen through the children's engagement in the subject and the love of learning another language that they develop as they begin to gain confidence with speaking and listening words and phrases from another language.
