Modern Foreign Languages

Welcome to our modern foreign languages page! Here is our MFL rationale:

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 recycle, revise and consolidate previously learnt language whilst building on all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing).

Some examples of our children's work in French. Whilst a lot of learning is done through speaking and listening activities, at Priestsic we strive to offer a variety of learning opportunities.

We often use 'flashback 4' at the start of lessons to enable children to recall prior learning.
