Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

Modern Foreign Languages at Broadmayne

The intention of the MFL curriculum at Broadmayne First School is to encourage an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and engaging.  We strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language through planning links to develop their wider awareness and understanding of the cultural similarities and differences of other countries. At Broadmayne the children learn French as their MFL, chosen as a country close to our part of the UK and one children are likely to visit.

We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply French learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.

Our MFL curriculum, is designed to immerse children in the French language and culture using songs, rhymes and games, and activities which progressively develop children skills in the language, through regular lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary. The scheme ensures coverage and progression across our school in KS2. All our children in KS2  have regular language lessons.
