At Lanesfield, we understand to learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world and feel at home. Therefore, we wish to create endless opportunities where every child is instilled with the belief that anything is possible.
The skills, knowledge and understanding gained make a major contribution to the development of children’s oracy and literacy and to their understanding of their own cultures and those of others.
At Lanesfield Primary, we want to prepare our children for life as citizens of a global community. By introducing a different language at an early age, we want to spark children’s interest in languages and provide them with foundational listening, speaking, reading and writing skills to allow them to communicate with others.
It is our aim to provide the foundations for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
Our language curriculum is further supported by the use of ICT. 1:1 iPads provide opportunities for our children to read and listen to phrases and stories in another language and provide a blended learning companion that is responsive with the user, enabling them to develop independence and accuracy.
