Aims and Objectives

Learning a foreign language provides an opening into other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read literature in the original language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
Throughout Key Stage 2, children will learn a range of skills including basic communication, and other phrases to help them discuss everyday topics such as weather, classroom items, animals, family and likes and dislikes. They will develop their skills so they are able to understand the grammatical differences between French and English.

Through our teaching of MFL we strive to:

  • encourage pupils to foster an interest in learning another language;
  • help children become aware that language has a structure, and that this structure differs from one language to another;
  • develop the speaking and listening skills of our learners;
  • promote enjoyment, pride and a sense of achievement;
  • encourage children to explore and apply strategies to improve their learning;
  • promote the exploration of cultural identities and those of others.
