Modern Foreign Languages

Ormiston Cliff Park Primary Academy follows the National Curriculum to teach Languages.

In Key Stage 2, children are taught French, which provides them with a foundation for further foreign language teaching in Key Stage 3.  The lessons include all four aspects of learning a language: reading, listening, speaking and writing, with the children becoming able to apply their knowledge of phonics, grammar and vocabulary with confidence.  In addition, they are learning about cultural practices.  These lessons enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focused on familiar and routine matters. Furthermore, it extends and deepens their knowledge and understanding of cultures and communities in the wider world.
