MFL (Modern Foreign Language)
Salut! Comment ça va?
We introduce French to pupils from Year 3 to Year 6 with the aim of enabling pupils to understand and communicate basic ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, with a focus on familiar and routine matters. Simple grammatical structures are taught alongside every day vocabulary on a variety of topics e.g.: greetings, describing yourself, family, numbers, colours, food, transport and the weather.
Pupils in Key Stage one may have the opportunity to learn greetings, numbers to 10 and some other words, phrases or songs, although it is not a National Curriculum requirement for children to be taught a foreign language before Key Stage 2.
Our long term plan and progression document can be found below. This details how French will be taught at Siddington C of E Primary School.
