We aim to develop children’s language and language learning skills through the teaching of French. We want children to be able to enjoy communicating and understanding another language. We also wish to increase cultural awareness by leaning about French speaking countries and their people. We promote the need for accurate pronunciation and grammar. We value the knowledge, skills and understanding required for learning a new language has on the teaching and learning of English.
At Sauncey Wood, MFL is taught throughout KS2 in order to develop their proficiency in the language. Provision is based on the requirements of the National Curriculum and emphasises the development of oral and written language along with an understanding of French culture.
