Languages at The Hendreds

Learning a foreign language is an enriching opportunity that provides children an opening to other cultures, which in turn teaches children to have a global perspective. At The Hendreds, children will come across a variety of languages, including French and Latin, which is intended to help children make linguistic links between languages and improve their understanding of the English language. Language learning starts in EYFS and continues through to Year 6, building on their knowledge and skills to develop a robust understanding of how words and sentences are formed. Children are provided with opportunities to communicate through speaking and listening for practical purposes, to learn new ways of thinking and read or listen to literature in the original language. Pupils leave The Hendreds as engaged language learners, who are excited to develop their abilities in other languages.
