French (MFL)

Our Aims

Welcome to our curriculum area for French, which is the language we have chosen to learn as our Modern Foreign Language.

We believe that learning an additional language supports our pupils to become members of a multi-cultural society; allowing us to celebrate difference, helping us to understand other cultures and foster a curiosity and deepening understanding of the wider world.

Our aim is to teach our children to express themselves in a language additional to their own.  This will be through exposure to a variety of authentic sources, understanding both written and spoken word. Children will speak with increasing confidence, making themselves understood with increasing fluency and individuality.

Throughout the KS2 French curriculum, children are taught a balance of spoken and written language which lays the foundations for practical communication and further foreign language learning at KS3.  Throughout the Early Years and KS1, children experience a variety of languages through songs, rhymes, stories and cartoons.
