Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)
It is our intent at West Wycombe School to provide all of our children with a high-quality education in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL), which develops their love of learning about other languages and cultures. Our current MFL taught is French, however we strive to provide children with opportunities to experience a range of other languages. It is our intention to ensure that by the end of our children’s primary education, they have acquired an understanding of both spoken and written French, confidence to speak in French with others and know how important other languages can be in their future.
Our MFL curriculum is designed to develop not only our children’s language skills, but also their love of learning a language. French afternoons allow children to progressively develop language skills and acquire new language which they can use and apply in a range of different scenarios and topics. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As their confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences. We are looking to build upon introducing a 'French Day' for the whole school.
