Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) is a statutory subject for pupils in KS2. However we teach MFL from EYFS through to Y6. We made this decision because when pupils are really young, they soak up new learning really quickly and have less inhibitions about speaking a different language.
We have chosen to teach our pupils French because this is the language taught at the high school.
To make sure we are providing our pupils with the best modern foreign langauges teaching, we use our most experienced French-speaking teachers to lead these lessons are support other colleagues who may be less confident.
We also teach our pupils how to use age appropriate French dictionaries and online translation tools as these are the aids we use in the adult world of speaking foreign languages. Our pupils love using the dictionaries.
