MFL in Key Stage 2
In my Modern Foreign Language lessons I will be learning French.
Through learning basic French vocabulary and grammar I will develop the initial skills, knowledge and understanding to speak, listen, read and write in French.
I will learn how to listen to and engage in basic conversations to communicate with others through asking and responding to questions and statements.
The development of my skills and vocabulary will enable me to read simple well known texts like poems, songs, rhymes and simple stories.
I will be able to write captions, labels and build sentences using the key features and patterns of the language.
Studying French as a Modern Foreign Language, will enable me to develop my knowledge of the country, including key aspects of culture, festivals and traditions. Through my learning I will be able to compare and contrast similarities and differences between family life in France and my own life in the United Kingdom.
This will give me the foundational skills to embrace further learning as I progress on my journey and development for the love of learning and applying my skills to the use of foreign languages.
This will give me the foundations to apply my knowledge, skills and understanding to embrace further learning as I progress on my journey in developing my love and passion for foreign languages.

Curriculum Milestones and Assesssments
Below are the links to our Curriculum Milestones for each year group. These documents outline what we expect our children to achieve in MFL (French) at the end of each year.
Each area of the Curriculum Milestones links to the MFL (French) curriculum which develops the ‘Oracy’, ‘Literacy’, ‘Intercultural Understanding’, ‘Knowledge About Languages’ and ‘Language Learning Strategies’ of the children.
These areas of the curriculum repeat, adding to the skills and knowledge of the children, every year as the children progress through the curriculum.
Children achieve at a ‘Basic Level’, the Expected Level’, or a ‘Deep Level’. Curriculum Milestones are used as our assessment and tracking tool in MFL (French).
