MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES (MFL)

Learning a language enriches the curriculum.

It provides excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning through life.

French is taught to all Key Stage 2 classes. 

Intent
Learning a language enriches the curriculum, providing excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life.

Children will be taught the 5 key skills across all 4 years which challenge children as they progress through the year groups. 
These 5 skills are:
Speaking
Listening
Reading
Writing
Grammar

Implement
Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences. 

Impact
French is monitored by subject leaders throughout all year groups using a variety of strategies such as book scrutinises, lesson observations, staff discussions and pupil interviews.  Feedback is given to teachers and leaders use the information to see if the children know more and remember more.
