Intent statement for MFL
At Coppull Parish our MFL curriculum is designed to progressively develop our pupils’ skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing French, in line with the National Curriculum, throughout KS2.
Children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable, stimulating and increases their confidence and cultural awareness. The linguistic skills gained at Coppull Parish will lay foundations for future language learning and give pupils a new and broader perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own culture and those of others.
Underpinned by the following Coppull Parish curriculum drivers:
Developing speech & language
French lessons focus on developing the children’s language skills and vocabulary knowledge. Children develop these skills through listen/repeat activities, songs, conversations and oral games.
Children learn about France and its culture through lessons on family, home life, school, towns and festivals.
Mental Health and Wellbeing
Teaching through songs, games and get-up-and-go activities is enjoyable and encourages children to take risks, make mistakes and learn from them in a secure environment.
