Learning about foreign languages is a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for all pupils. We live in a multi-cultural and multi-lingual world; learning a language raises awareness of this and gives pupils an insight into their own culture as well as into others.
At Carlton, we encourage children to become aware of other languages and cultures throughout the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. When they reach Key Stage 2 all children take part in a weekly languages lesson. We have chosen French as our main language to learn. Our goal is to inspire children to love learning about languages through games, songs and stories.
