Intent

Our Modern Foreign Language (MFL) curriculum in Key Stage 2, is designed to progressively develop children’s skills in languages, through regular taught lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics. All of these approaches help to equip our children with the skills to be confident global citizens. With the help of our Polish community, all our children are continuously immersed in a language rich environment. We have chosen to follow the Lightbulb Language Scheme as it clearly builds skills and knowledge in each year group through a variety of interactive and engaging activities.

Implementation

Children are introduced to French, throughout their time in Key Stage 2 with regular interactive lessons. This enables the children to develop early language acquisition skills that facilitate their understanding of the patterns of language and how these differ from, or are similar to, English. Lessons across the Key Stages support the skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing:

• Children are taught to listen attentively to spoken language and respond, joining in with songs, rhymes and games.

• Links have been developed with secondary schools and children from KS3 visit to disseminate language learning to the children.

• Children develop an appreciation of a variety of stories, songs, poems and rhymes in French that are delivered through the curriculum content.

• Cross curricular links with computing are provided.

• We follow the primary MFL scheme of work from Lightbulb Languages. French is taught weekly for an hour.

Impact

Our MFL curriculum ensures that children develop their knowledge of where different languages, including the range of home languages spoken by the families of the school (predominately Polish), as well as French, are spoken in the world. Varied learning experiences ensure that languages are celebrated throughout the school community whilst providing a context for language learning and develop the children’s understanding of different cultures. Children are assessed at the end of each term to check knowledge, skills and vocabulary.
