Modern Foreign Languages

At Cathcart Street, Key Stage 2 pupils are taught Spanish. Learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures and encourages pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. Our pupils are able to express their ideas and thoughts in Spanish and will learn how to understand and respond to speakers, both in speech and in writing.
 
Learning a language provides opportunities for pupils to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
