Modern Foreign Languages at Stalmine School
At Manor Beach, pupils in Key Stage Two have the right to learn an additional language, the study of which liberates children from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures.
Here at Manor Beach, the children learn French. French lessons at Manor Beach give children opportunities to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both verbally and in writing. They also provide opportunities to read age-appropriate literature and learn songs in the French language. Ultimately, French lessons at Manor Beach aim to provide a firm foundation for further language-learning, equipping children with the skills that they need in order to become life-long language learners, both for the pleasure that can be derived from doing so, and for the practical purpose of equipping pupils to study and work in other countries. We teach a curriculum that enables our pupils to become effective users of French and show an understanding and respect of different cultures in our local, national and global communities.
