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.
Our children grasp the basics in a different language which helps them when they move to Secondary School. They also get to explore and learn about different cultures and ways of life. Learning a different language helps our children to be curious about the wider world and want to explore and visit other countries and places.
Spanish teaching is offered at a lunch time club if the children wish to attend.
