Modern Foreign Languages
Within our schools we teach French as a modern foreign language in order to prepare our children for a rapidly changing world. Learning a foreign language prepares our children for life in modern Britain, in which work and activities increasingly involve using languages other than English.
Our vision for MFL
We believe that children’s love of language learning should be fostered from a young age, and that children in our federation will become French speakers with the confidence and enjoyment that good teaching provides.
In KS1 we endeavour to make links with language; braille and British sign language and children will be exposed to everyday vocabulary (greetings, songs and instructions) throughout the day.
In KS2 children will have 30 minutes of French taught by the class teacher each week and will be exposed daily to French in taking the register or classroom instructions.
Early Years Foundation Stage
In the EYFS children are given the opportunity to explore other languages through stories, song and celebrations and they are encouraged to respond to what they hear and understand with relevant comments and questions.
