Hatherleigh Community Primary School Caring about learning and learning to care

Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages promote an interest and curiosity about the wider world and a sense of European/international identity. Languages raise children's awareness of being a global citizen. The aims of MFL teaching at Hatherleigh Primary School are to enable all children to:


- develop an enthusiasm for learning languages and to become aware of the benefits of understanding and speaking different languages;

- communicate in other languages through speaking, listening, reading and writing;

- respect and understand other cultures, heritage and multilingualism;

- become interested in the international dimensions of the school through the   development of links with other countries.

French Day 2017. After a day of French activities in our classes we went to the Community Centre for our French assembly. Each class sang songs and shared what they had been doing with the rest of the school and the parents.
