Aims of the subject:
We aim to promote a love of languages, and an interest in other countries and cultures. Whether German, French or Spanish, pupils will learn vocabulary and an awareness of grammar to allow them to communicate in a clear and straightforward way. Pupils will develop the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.

How you can support your child’s progress
Developing memory skills is a vital part of learning a language learning and we set vocabulary learning as homework. You can help your child by encouraging them to memorise the set vocabulary. This can be done in many enjoyable ways such as quizzing, writing mini flash cards, using post-it notes, writing on a mini whiteboard, recording the vocabulary on their phone, miming or using one of the many vocabulary learning websites available. We recommend “quizlet.com”.
