At KPNS, we believe that a high-quality MFL education provides a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. We have chosen to teach French as it provides a firm foundation in one of the core languages taught at our feeder secondary school; the ultimate aim being that pupils will feel willing and able to continue studying French beyond Key Stage 2. We want all our pupils to develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating. Learning an additional language will also offer our pupils the opportunity to explore relationships between language and identity, develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them.
At KPNS, we aim to:
Offer a relevant, broad, vibrant and ambitious MFL curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils.
Teach through a variety of themes and topics so that pupils foster curiosity about other cultures and languages.
Give children the knowledge and skills so they can understand and respond to spoken and written language.
Provide the foundation for learning further languages beyond KS2 and equip pupils to study and work in other countries.
Explore areas of French Culture and compare them to others that the children are familiar with.
