Bonjour and bienvenue to our MFL page!
The intention of the French curriculum at Lord Street Primary School is for children to be taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We encourage children’s confidence, and we strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about languages. Through careful planning we ensure there are steps to develop the children's' awareness of cultural differences in other countries and through our protected characteristics, British values and curriculum enrichment opportunities we enhance our children's' learning across the whole curriculum. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing all necessary to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.
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.
Children will know more and remember more about MFL.
Children will recognise and apply key French vocabulary verbally.
Children will be able to write a limited amount in French.
The large majority of children will achieve age related expectations by the end of the year.
