It is our commitment to provide every child at Ringwood Junior School with the entitlement to learn a foreign language. Our vision is for all children to acquire the skills to become life long language learners and to enjoy the freedom and competence of being able to communicate with others in a different language to their own. Through their language learning, all children will be developing their international outlook and interest in the culture of other nations. Modern Foreign Languages promote an interest and curiosity about the wider world and a sense of European and International identity. Languages also raise children’s awareness of being a global citizen. The units of work across the school ensure that the topics that the children study build upon prior learning. While there are opportunities for children of all abilities to develop their skills and knowledge in each lesson, the planned progression built into the scheme of work means that the children are increasingly challenged as they move through the school. All children have the entitlement of receiving 60 minutes of language learning each week. This is divided into one lesson of 30 minutes with the remaining 30 minutes being embedded across the week in other subjects and other areas of the school day. We continue to celebrate our language learning through the use of display around the school.
