Statement of Intent

French is our chosen target language and is taught across Key Stage Two. Our MFL curriculum intent is very much to encourage a ‘thirst for knowledge’ and give our children the opportunity to learn about different countries, communities, cultures and traditions so that they can begin to see beyond their own experiences. We aim to introduce a love of learning of the French language and the understanding of its culture in enjoyable and stimulating ways. We hope to embed the essential skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing in engaging and interesting ways. We aim to build the children’s ‘cultural capital’ so that they are aware of similarities and differences between cultures, and though they may not leave us as linguists, we hope to lay the foundations and a real interest and love for future language learning. The world really is a big place and is there to be explored by them!
