French (MFL)

MFL Vision Statement

At Fairview, we believe that studying a MFL (modern foreign language) will help pupils to develop an understanding of different counties and cultures. A high-quality MFL education should inspire in pupils, a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of French as a MFL, the vocabulary both spoken and written but to also gain an insight into the culture and life in France and how this is similar and different to their own. 


The curriculum is designed to ensure that teaching equips pupils with the vocabulary needed to communicate both verbally and in writing and should lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at key stage 3. As pupils progress through the school, their growing knowledge of French vocabulary helps them to deepen their understanding of the French language and to use this knowledge when interacting with each other.  


Our teaching of MFL, although mainly focused on French, is not solely limited to this. Children are encouraged to use languages from their own cultures, languages from holidays and various languages from around the world in songs, greetings and celebrations.
