At Morley Victoria, we believe that learning languages is very important. We want to ensure that our pupils are well-rounded, knowledgeable and confident linguists who have an awareness for countries and cultures other than their own. In Key Stage 2 the children learn French through a carefully crafted curriculum that ensures progression of both knowledge and skills through a variety of fun and exciting lessons that include stories, songs, games and visitors. We also enjoy a whole school “Worldwide Week” enabling all children in school to learn more about the world they live in. We believe that learning a language enriches the curriculum, providing excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life.
