Design & Technology (D&T)
At St John’s it is our intent, through our foreign language curriculum, to develop in our children, a love of learning about other languages and cultures. Our current foreign language taught is French, however we strive to provide children with opportunities to experience a range of other languages. It is our intention that when children leave St John’s, they will have a natural curiosity and confidence to begin to explore other countries, cultures and languages, understanding that, in a multi-lingual society it is a valuable skill to be able to communicate effectively with others in another language. We want to provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping children to access international opportunities for study and work later in life.
By Year 6, our children will have acquired an understanding of both spoken and written French, a growing confidence to speak in French with others and know how important other languages can be in their future.
Our vision is for ‘all our children to become responsible citizens who make positive contributions to society’ and as we live in a multi -cultural society we are preparing them for their future without barriers.
