Modern Foreign Languages
Intent and Implementation
At Town Field we believe that Modern Foreign Languages, and in our case, French, is an important part of the primary school curriculum. As a multi-national school, where we have speakers of over forty different languages, our children are well placed to learn languages, develop their linguistic skills and to understand the benefits of speaking more than one language. We aim to promote languages as a vibrant and enjoyable curriculum subject and promote its undoubted potential for opening future possibilities for all of our children. Using the national curriculum for guidance, a ‘progression of skills document’ has been produced to ensure that skills are developed and built upon from Year 3 up to Year 6. Within each year group, a ‘long term overview’ is used to ensure that objectives are taught in a sequential manner which allows children to gain confidence and the necessary skills in order to make progress. Each objective is assessed by teachers to monitor progress, support children who find the subject more challenging and to offer greater challenge to those who develop their French skills at a quicker rate.
Our carefully planned MFL curriculum will give the children and staff;
- cultural enrichment
The ethos of our MFL delivery fits perfectly with our Town Field Ten and helps to give all of our children a set of valuable skills for life and learning.
