Modern Foreign Languages

At Newhall Primary Academy we offer the French curriculum to all KS2 pupils. The teaching of MFL offers opportunities for children to:

 become increasingly familiar with the sounds and written form of a modern foreign language;

 develop language skills and language-learning skills;

 understand and communicate in a new language;

 make comparisons between the foreign language and English or another language;

 increase their cultural awareness by learning about different countries and their people, and working with materials from those countries and communities;

 foster positive attitudes towards foreign language learning;

 use their knowledge with growing confidence and competence to understand what they hear and read, and to express themselves in speech and in writing;

 form a sound basis for further study at key stage 3 and beyond.
