Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages

Our MFL learning is French. Some aspects of our language learning are within our theme and some are taught discretely.

 

In MFL we work on five different skills:

  • Listening & Responding
  • Speaking
  • Reading & Responding
  • Writing

 

Through our teaching of French we aim to:

  • Inspire children to be excited about modern foreign languages
  • Increase their understanding of other countries
  • Encourage children to attempt speaking through questioning and games
  • Increase children’s confidence in their ability to listen and respond in another language
  • Understand grammatical structure and sentence construction

 

Through French we can also:

  • Improve aspects of English such as speaking and listening
  • Improve Mathematics when counting, using money and saying the date
  • Develop multi-cultural work through international links and storytelling
  • Improve ICT skills through e-mail and satellite television
  • Expand geographical and historical knowledge relating to other countries

 

SMSC in MFL:

  • Spiritual: beliefs and values of others
  • Moral: right and wrong situations world differences
  • Social: surroundings and school life (pupils that attend the school)
  • Cultural: discussion opportunities
