MFL at Chandlers Ridge


MFL is taught at KS2 and our language we use is French. Lessons are taught in a sequential manner so vocabulary is first, which then builds to sentences and short conversations. Key vocabulary will be identified and reinforced in short texts. Language is reinforced through displays and opportunities to use key language at other curriculum times.

Content is age appropriate and to engage pupils by being varied. Topic related content helps children learn more knowledge about their other subjects in school to strengthen their learning. Children are encouraged to say, repeat, and use language to embed in their memory.

Curriculum is balanced as it provides opportunities for speaking, listening, reading, writing and developing cultural awareness. We also have a after school French club which children can join which is an opportunity for the children to practice these skills further.
