Subject Ethos Statement
‘When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.’ ACTS 2: 1 -5
The main aims of the Languages curriculum at St Joseph’s and St Gregory’s are:
- to foster an interest and positive attitude towards learning other languages;
- to help children to explore and develop an awareness of cultural differences and respect these;
- to lay the foundations for future study beyond Primary School.
