At East Bergholt Primary School, we use the Language Angels scheme of work and resources to ensure we offer a relevant, broad, vibrant and ambitious foreign languages curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils using a wide variety of topics and themes.
The four key language learning skills; listening, speaking, reading and writing will be taught and all necessary grammar will be covered in an age-appropriate way across the primary phase. This will enable pupils to use and apply their learning in a variety of contexts, laying down solid foundations for future language learning and also helping the children improve overall attainment in other subject areas. In addition, the children will be taught how to look up and research language they are unsure of and they will have a bank of reference materials to help them with their spoken and written tasks going forward. This bank of reference materials will develop into a reference library to help pupils recall and build on previous knowledge throughout their primary school language learning journey.
All content will be continuously updated and reviewed annually, creating a dynamic programme of study that is clearly outlined in both long-term and short-term planning. The foreign language knowledge, of our pupils, progresses within each academic year and is extended year upon year throughout the primary phase and will always be relevant and in line with meeting or exceeding national DFE requirements.
All pupils develop key language learning skills set out by the national curriculum, as well as a love of languages and learning about other cultures.
