Modern Foreign Languages
"With languages you are at home anywhere." Edward de Waal
At St. Wulstan’s, the language that we teach in school in KS2 is French although we do encourage children to become aware of other languages and cultures. Our goal is to enthuse and inspire pupils to participate fully and develop a love of learning about modern foreign languages. Our children learn French from Year 3 onwards, through songs, games, speaking and writing the language. It is important that children learn about different cultures to broaden their understanding of the world.
About Our Vision for Modern Foreign Languages
We believe learning a new language is a normal part of child’s education. As one of the most popular languages in the world, we teach children French as part of their primary education, this includes learning the language and understanding all about Spanish culture.
Our aim is to see pupils leave our school in Year 6 with the ability to: understand and respond to spoken and written language; speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity; write at varying length; and to discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in French.
If you have any questions about the MFL curriculum within school, please come into school and ask to speak to Mrs. Sturgess, our MFL Lead.
