MFL Curriculum Intent
We aim that by the time pupils leave the federation of Hanbury’s Farm and Oakhill Primary they will be confident to speak in basic French for a range of situations as well as being able to listen and respond in French.
Our intent is that all pupils will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating. Learning French will also offer pupils the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them with a better awareness of self, others and cultural differences. The aim is that they will be working towards becoming life-long language learners. We use the Kapow scheme of work and resources to offer a relevant, broad, vibrant and ambitious foreign languages curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils using a wide variety of topics and themes.
The learning of French has only just begun within the federation and so will take time to embed. Through the use of planning supported by the Kapow scheme we aim to ensure that eventually children are accessing work at age related expectations. They will be able to recognise and apply key vocabulary within conversations and will be challenged in a range of speaking and listening, reading and writing activities.
Pupils will continuously build on their previous knowledge as they progress in their foreign language journey through the primary phase.
