Welcome to Languages at Woodchurch!


“A different language is a different vision in life.”
- Frederico Fellini


At Woodchurch we aim to inspire a love of learning languages.  By beginning to speak and understand other languages our children will also foster curiosity, knowledge and understanding of the global society in which they live.  Furthermore, we believe that learning a second language plays a valuable role in supporting the understanding of English.


Although Languages are mandatory for KS2 only, EYFS and KS1 children are always excited to be introduced to new languages.  We do this by introducing them to songs and simple vocabulary in languages as and when they are relevant across the curriculum.


As an active member of the Tenterden Rural Alliance (TRA) we have worked closely with Homewood School and Sixth Form College and our partner primary schools to develop a common KS2 language programme.  In this way we can be confident that when our children leave us to join their secondary school they will have a firm foundation in learning languages.
