At Harwood Meadows we believe learning a foreign language can provide pupils with a better understanding of cultures different to their own. Our high-quality languages education for Key Stage 2 (Italian) is delivered by a teacher who is a qualified teacher of English as a Secondary Language (TESOL), and has spent several years teaching students of varying ages in Italy. Our curriculum fosters pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world in which they live. Pupils will be taught to express their ideas and thoughts in Italian and understand and respond to speakers, both in speech and, later in their development, in writing. Learning Italian will provide the foundation for learning further languages at secondary school, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
