MFL Statement of Intent
At Willow Primary Academy children in KS2 learn French. We believe a high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It also provides opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. The way we teach French provides the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries. Our children are given the opportunity to be language detectives and regularly practise using their language learning super skills. The children also learn how to use these skills in other languages too.
