MFL – French for everyone.
In line with the new National Curriculum we have introduced French as our modern foreign language throughout KS2. The main aim of our MFL work is to give a basic grounding in vocabulary and encourage listening and speaking skills. Our French programme will include lots of work around every day language and will promote confidence in speaking by recognising and responding to core phrases. We aim to make this fun for the children using lots of conversations, games and songs. Evidence of vocabulary and writing will be recorded in Learning Journals in a variety of ways and will be monitored on a regular basis.
Some of our children have been learning French with our visiting French teacher already. These pupils get the opportunity to be group leaders for conversation work and demonstrating good pronunciation! We hope all the children will find this an exciting experience and will share their new skills with you at home.
