At Gilded Hollins, we aim to develop language learners, who are tolerant to other cultures, from EYFS. Each year, the whole school engages in a Cultural Week, bespoke to cultures within our school, where children learn about a country and experience dance, art, music, literature etc… from this culture. On a weekly basis, from Y2 upwards, children learn French. Each topic progresses through the assessment focuses, Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing (KS2) through games, role play activities, songs and literature, being able to use content to deduce meaning. By the end of their Primary language learning experience, we aim for our resilient learners to be confident in conversing, drawing upon their phonic knowledge and key phrases taught, writing in full sentences using personalised phrase books and dictionaries to support this, including asking questions, translating using near cognates and known vocabulary, and using a range of grammatical features in spoken and written language correctly.
