Foreign Languages at Egerton
At Egerton Primary School, Spanish is taught by a subject specialist from Year 1 to Year 6 as part of the normal school curriculum. Introducing children to foreign languages at a young age is of particular benefit as it is the age at which they are naturally more receptive to language learning. Language lies at the heart of ideas about individual identity and community and learning another language helps to shape children's understanding of the world. It gives them a new perspective on their own language and it enhances their sense of confidence. It prepares them for participation in a rapidly changing environment in which work and other activities are often conducted in languages other than English.
