The 2014 National Curriculum for MfL aims to ensure that all children:

understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources

speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation

can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt

discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.



We intend for our children to develop an appreciation of other languages and cultures. They will develop an increased knowledge of the spoken and written language of France. Children will begin to be able to express themselves and communicate coherently. We intend that children will develop a curiosity of the wider world and its cultures.



Children explore French through a well-planned and structured series of lessons.  This exploration is implemented with both oral and written approaches to the subject. Our curriculum is planned as such that it provides our children with regular opportunities to revise and revisit their learning. Children actively participate in an oral rehearsal of communication and in the development of its written form.  They present their knowledge in a variety of ways, both teacher and child-led.



Children of MBHT leave school with increasing awareness, skills and knowledge of France and its language. This is then a platform for children to explore their future and be curious about the world around them.
