At St Mark and All Saints C of E Primary every child throughout the school from Reception to Year 6 has the opportunity to study a language and develop their communication skills, building a love of language learning. In studying two different languages: French and Spanish, children develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities in foreign languages compared to English. Learning these languages raises awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world around us, building knowledge which will help facilitate the learning of languages later in life.
