Our Intent in MFL
At Sharp Lane Primary School, we recognise the importance of learning and understanding a modern foreign language (FRENCH) to provide an opening to other cultures.
Our intent is for our pupils to be ASPIRATIONAL by ensuring our MFL teaching provides the foundation for learning further languages, as well as the means to access international opportunities for study and work later in life.
We want our children to BELIEVE in themselves by allowing them to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond both in speech and in writing.
Our children COMMIT themselves to their learning by applying the Spanish they are taught to other areas. They practise the words and phrases they are taught both orally and in written form, building upon and developing these skills so that the children can communicate confidently using the Spanish taught.
We allow our children to explore and DISCOVER through fostering children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world through learning and understanding a different language.
