MFL

 
At Linthorpe Community Primary School, we believe that learning a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for all pupils and is a necessary part of being a member of a multicultural society that provides an opening to other cultures. We aspire to expose our pupils to an MFL curriculum, which is rich in skills and knowledge, develops cultural understanding and produces enthusiastic and life-long language learners.
 

Our MFL curriculum is designed to progressively develop children skills in languages through regular taught lessons. Planned units allow pupils to develop the key vocabulary and grammar skills to express their ideas and thoughts in another language, and understand and respond to its speaker. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to communicate and apply language learning in a practical, meaningful context. In addition to this, through explicit teaching of cultural traditions, we aim to explore differences and similarities in cultures to promote respect and tolerance.

All of the National Curriculum is taught but via an enriched National Curriculum+ offer and ‘50 things’, we ensure that children have as many opportunities to make meaningful links to real life contexts and experiences.
