MFL - French

Vision and Intent for MFL - French

At Hollybush Primary School, we believe that learning a foreign language is an essential part of being a member of a multi-cultural society. Providing our pupils with opportunities to explore the relationship between language and identity and develop a deeper understanding of culture. Our aim is to provide all children with a high-quality education in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) which in turn ignites their curiosity and encourages a love of learning about other languages and cultures.

The National Curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • Speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • Can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

Our current MFL taught is French. The intent is that all children will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating. We will ensure that by the end of our children’s education at our school, they have acquired an understanding of both spoken and written French, confidence to speak in French with others and to know how important other languages can be in their future.

MFL - French at Hollybush

At Hollybush, we utilise the ‘CPG Salut!’ scheme of learning. Children have weekly lessons, where they are explicitly taught spoken and written French. CPG Salut encourages a sense of enjoyment around learning a language and explores all forms of acquiring a language, ensuring that our French curriculum meets the requirements of the National Curriculum and progressively develops children’s skills. Our French lessons consist of a range of interactive activities such as conversational work, role play, singing, games and stories. These practical approaches are to help improve memory and recall. Children also learn key skills in reading and writing in French. We use the GPG written activities, as well as floor books to record children’s learning and progression. Strategies to support reading and writing skills also include key vocabulary displayed in classrooms and the use of flashcards and word mats.
