MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES - FRENCH

 

AIMS:

At Ely St Mary’s we believe that teaching French allows the children to develop communication skills for a wider community. Children are encouraged to develop a broad vocabulary and use this within both spoken and written communications. They are encouraged to find out about the people who speak French and ask questions about the culture of these communities' considering the similarities and differences to their own. Through our MFL curriculum, we aim to encourage our children to develop a lasting enthusiasm for learning languages and ultimately pursue their foundation of knowledge into KS3 and beyond.  

 

APPRAOCH:

St Mary’s teaching of French is supported by the Primary Languages Network, which ensures all pupils receive consistent and quality language lessons. This supporting resource places an experienced primary languages teacher and native speaker in every classroom, delivering weekly, high-quality video resources for every lesson throughout KS2. https://primarylanguages.network/
