Modern Foreign Languages

At Woodnook, our chosen Modern Foreign Language for Key Stage 2 is French. We have chosen this because it reflects the language taught at local High Schools which most of our pupils transition to. It also has clear links with our curriculum particularly in History and Geography. 

As part of a multi-cultural community, awareness of different languages is an integral part of every day life. We believe that learning another language provides an opening to other cultures. We aim to provide a high quality language curriculum which fosters pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the wider world. Our curriculum enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in French and to understand and respond to spoken French through speech and writing. Through French lessons, pupils will develop an awareness of France and the French culture which in turn develops respect and promotes cultural capital.
