Modern Foreign Languages


In Key Stage Two, our children are taught to speak, read and write in French. Our Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Curriculum aims to provide children with an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the world and other cultures. Children are taught to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to communicate for practical purposes. Our teaching provides the foundation for beginning to learn a foreign language, equipping pupils to further study this and other languages at Secondary School. 

All classes will have access to a very high-quality foreign languages curriculum using the La Jolie Ronde scheme of work and resources. This will progressively develop pupil skills in foreign languages through regularly taught and well-planned weekly lessons. Though teachers are encouraged to use the programme’s planning and differentiated resources, it is important to assess these and adapt them where necessary. Therefore, lessons offering appropriate levels of challenge and differentiation will be taught at all times to ensure pupils learn effectively, continuously building their knowledge of and enthusiasm for French.

Units, where possible and appropriate, will be linked to class topics and cross curricular themes. Children will build on previous knowledge gradually as their French lessons continue to revisit, revise and consolidate previously learnt language whilst building on all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing).

Key Stage Two French Day


In Key Stage Two, the children took part in a 'French Day' to encourage an enthusiasm for learning a foreign language and to promote a deeper understanding of French culture, history and significant people linked to our curriculum.  Throughout the day children took part in a variety of activities and produced pieces of work to showcase their learning in an exhibition at the end of the day.  

Year 3


In year 3, the children produced a short role-play to practise simple French greetings and how to ask how someone is. They also learned key facts about France as a country and researched some of the famous monuments.  Please take a look at our short video below.

Year 4


The children researched significant  aspirational French people including Louis Braille (who invented the braille system), Niki de Saint Phalle, Jules Verne and David Guetta.  The children produced some super fact files and biographies. Later in the day, they really enjoyed learning about Bastille Day - an important celebration in French culture. They worked as a team to research and produce some wonderful flip books to showcase thier learning.  But most of all they really enjoyed tasting French foods including different cheeses and cakes.

Year 5


Year 5 had a brilliant day, they looked at and learnt many common French phrases, including how to greet one another and how to ask for some foods. They also researched and discussed their two French aspirational figures (Thierry Henry and Napoleon) and, of course, tasted some delicious French food. 

Year 6


The children practised greetings, asking names and how people are.  They also learnt how to say they would like something, looked at cafe foods and created a French menu.  The best part was sampling some French food where the children then had to express their preferences.  The children also created a factfile on the famous French artist Henri Rousseau.
