Here at St Luke’s, through the National Curriculum we aim for our children to develop an interest and thirst for learning another language, providing opportunities to aid their curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world around them!
Our MFL curriculum aims to create children who:
– Are increasingly confident and fluent in communicating and expressing ideas when speaking and writing using simple French words, phrases and sentences.
– Can understand spoken and written French through listening and reading.
– Develop an understanding of French cultures and customs and how they compare to our own culture
MFL lessons are delivered on a weekly basis in KS2. Our MFL curriculum focuses predominantly on the French language and culture, following units of work from the scheme ‘Rigolo’. This provides children with engaging, practical learning opportunities
covering the 4 key skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
In line with the National Curriculum, children are taught to:
(Y3/4) Greetings, numbers, classroom, days of the week, months, describing people, animals, activities, French towns and festivals
(Y5/6) Greetings, family, school, food, town, holiday, home, hobbies, daily routine, clothing
