At Ravensworth Terrace Primary School, we aim to provide a high-quality education in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL). The main language we teach is French. We want to spark our children’s curiosity and interest in learning another language and develop a real love for learning in an enjoyable and stimulating way.
Children begin learning French from Key Stage Two – Year 3. It is taught in a whole class setting, using Language Angels scheme of work. French lessons across Key Stage 2 aim to develop children’s speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Each lesson, children build on the skills that they have already learnt and develop new ones through a range of fun, exciting and engaging activities. The lessons are designed to motivate children from the first moment and have clear, achievable objectives and incorporate creative activities for different learning styles. French lessons provide a variety of sources to model the language, use games, stories and songs to maximise enjoyment and make as many connections to real life situations as possible.
With the high quality first teaching of French taking place, we will see the impact of the subject in the following ways:
· Pupils will become aware that a language has a structure, and that the structure differs from one language to another.
· Pupils will develop their language and communication through development of the four key skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
· Pupils will enrich their language learning by developing an understanding of the French culture.
· Pupil will transfer to KS3 effectively and successfully and will be well prepared to continue and develop their language skills
