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.
