At The Victory Primary School, we appreciate how learning and having access to a high-quality foreign language opens up endless opportunities, now and for the future, which helps children to deepen their understanding of other cultures around the world.
The teaching of Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) should enable our pupils to build strong foundations which they can strengthen as they move into KS3, KS4 and beyond; where they can express their ideas and thoughts, in another language, and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing, with confidence.
French, at The Victory Primary, is currently taught weekly by the class teachers in KS2 and follows a clear progression of skills. We use an interactive approach to the learning, supported by Primary Languages Network, which compliments all the objectives laid out in the National Curriculum. All learning is taught progressively to include the key skills of: Listening, Reading, Speaking, Writing, Basic Grammar and Phonics, through Years 3–6, with activities that build on and embed previous learning.
Early Years and KS1, are prepared for the transition into KS2, by learning through songs, poems or rhym.
