French - MFL

The teaching of a foreign language to every child in KS2 is a statutory requirement, as set out in the National Curriculum Programmes of Study (2014).

Our French curriculum is designed to enable our children to:

  • Develop linguistic and communicative competence
  • Extend their knowledge of how language works
  • Explore similarities and differences between French, any heritage languages our children have, and English

We teach three core strands of essential knowledge: 

  1. Phonics – the key components of the sound-writing relationship
  2. Vocabulary – a set of the most frequently used words
  3. Grammar – the essential building blocks required to create simple sentences independently (including gender of nouns, singular and plural forms, adjectives (place and agreement), and the conjugation of key verbs)
