Sunnyside Primary Academy


Languages Curriculum Intent

A good understanding of different languages enables children to communicate more effectively with others, opens opportunities for our pupils and broadens our pupils’ cultural understanding and awareness.  At Sunnyside Primary Academy we teach French. 


Children achieve through expressing ideas and thoughts in another language as well as understanding and responding when the language is spoken. 


Children need perseverance to master the challenge of learning another language.  Over time, they develop confidence in the skills of listening, speaking and writing. 


Children understand their responsibility to communicate effectively with others and their responsibility as a citizen in a global community.


Children develop a wider understanding of different cultures and a deeper understanding of the world.  Children are equipped to visit another country, or to study or work there, and they aspire to do so.
