Our Vision for MFL
At Holy Trinity, we aim to develop in pupils an enthusiasm for learning a modern foreign language and a desire to further this skill as they move into key stage 3. We hope that through speaking, listening, reading, writing, singing and group and class games, children will be engaged in learning the language. We also strive to foster in pupils a curiosity about the culture and the country they are studying.
MFL (French) is taught weekly in Key Stage 2 for four half-terms out of six, by a Subject Specialist Teacher during Class Teachers’ PPA sessions. Each lesson lasts one hour.
The planning is based on a resource from CGP - “Salut!” - and adapted to meet the needs of learners at Holy Trinity. Across Key Stage 2, pupils will be introduced to key French vocabulary in a range of topics that will enable them to understand, speak, read and write to a basic standard. They will develop the ability to ask and answer questions to clarify their understanding.
