In this section of the website, you will find information about our approach to teaching MFL at Neville’s Cross.
What does MFL look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville’s Cross, our curriculum is designed for our KS2 children to follow the Salut French teaching program. It is our intent that pupils make sense of their place in the wider world. Each French project begins with a song to introduce key vocabulary and ends with reading a French text. The starting point is always to refer to previous learning then French vocabulary is explicitly shared to ensure children are equipped with a practical tool kit to be a linguist. Our French curriculum incorporates the understanding of French so that children know more, remember more and understand more. As a result, children will develop the knowledge to be able to communicate in another language other than English. Our French program of work enables pupils to explore the cultural capital of another country through its language and traditions. We also offer a link with a school in Ham, Amiens in France that we are making and sharing projects with. We take part in European languages Day in KS2 and a Whole School Languages Day. Eg Bastille Day, Francophone day. Our curriculum is organised on a 2-year roll and carefully planned so that children have opportunities to revisit and review previous learning whilst acquiring new knowledge and skills.
