Modern Languages



As the world we live in becomes increasingly diverse and more accessible (for those of us who want to head off on holiday), learning a foreign language is more important than ever.  In spite of this, the Department of Education terminated The Primary Modern Languages Programme in 2015 due to financial constraints resulting in no funding being available for schools to employ specialist foreign language teachers.  However, at Macosquin Primary School, we recognise the need and demand for children to be exposed to additional languages.  As children are more likely to retain another language when they are introduced to it at a young age, our pupils learn to speak French in P5, P6 and P7.

Every year we enjoy celebrating European Day of Languages. This year we focused on learning about language and culture in France and Spain.
