At St John’s C of E Primary every child throughout the school from Reception to Year 6 has the opportunity to study a language and develop their communication skills, building a love of language learning. In studying three different languages: French in Reception and KS1, Spanish in lower KS2 and German in upper KS2, children develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities in several foreign languages compared to English. Learning these languages raises awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world around us, building knowledge which will help facilitate the learning of languages later in life.
