Modern Foreign Languages (French)

At Wallsend Jubilee Primary School, we want every child to be happy and enthusiastic learners of French, and to be eager to achieve their very best in order to fulfil their own talents. We firmly believe that the recipe for success is quality first teaching in French, this is central to the life of our happy, caring school. We believe that the learning of a language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop communication skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing, with an aim of making substantial progress in one language. In addition, children’s knowledge of how language works will be developed to lay the foundations for further language learning in future. We believe that learning another language gives children a new and broader perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others, which feeds into our whole school ethos.
