Learning a language in the early years prepares our children for future education decisions. Here at Mercy Primary our pupils are taught French every week in our school as an after-school activity by one of our own teachers, Anna McGuire.
The pupils love learning another language and it also enables them to sample a foreign language before they select their foreign language for Secondary School.
We believe by giving our pupils the opportunity to learn a new language it will allow them to:
- Experience enjoyment and fulfillment in language activities
- Explore, experiment with and enjoy all the playful aspects of language.
- Take part in language-learning activities with self-confidence, thereby enhancing the child’s self-esteem.
