Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)
Learning through Modern Foreign Languages at Greenleas
At Greenleas we enjoy fostering children’s desire to learn about other cultures and languages. We understand that learning languages not only teaches grammar, and speaking and listening, but it enhances confidence in these areas in the classroom in an enjoyable manner and a variety of contexts. Languages are then continued through further education, after being given a secure basic knowledge and understanding whilst at Greenleas.
At Greenleas, French is our chosen language within Key Stage Two.
Our aims are:
To develop an awareness of other languages, and the cultures of where they are spoken.
To increase confidence in speaking fluently, both independently and prompted within a conversation.
To be able to read everyday words and recognise the key points of a short text.
To write everyday words fluently, building up to short texts using imagination.
French is taught through:
A range of schemes including QCA, Lightbulb Languages and Twinkl, adapted to meet the interests of our children
Classroom displays and labels around the school
Repetition and plentiful opportunities to practise conversational speech and pronunciation, for example when answering the register
Interactive resources, some of which can be accessed from home.
Please see links for assembly resources, interactive games to support French learning, and a curriculum overview.
