Modern Foreign Languages

Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. Teaching enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. 

 

At St Peter's we use the Rigolo scheme to teach French but also invite and encourage the sharing of expertise where children are already fluent in another language.
