“Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.”

The National Curriculum

MFL Intent

At Ann Edwards, we foster children’s social skills, communication, joy of learning, sense of inquiry and creativity through our teaching, in Key Stage 2, of the German language. Our aim is to provide pupils with a positive and successful early modern foreign language experience which will develop their self-esteem as linguists and provide motivation for future language learning.


Our inclusive German language programme immerses children in listening, speaking and singing as well as supporting their reading, writing and mathematical skills and providing them with a strong understanding of German culture to help children’s understanding of their place in a 21st Century local and global caring community.
