MfL - French

The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

MFL at North Featherstone

Here at North Featherstone we use Kapow planning in our lessons, adapting it for our pupils and focusing on instilling a love of language and becomming confident in writing and speaking in French.

 Our scheme of work is based upon the three knowledge strands




This knowledge is then applied within our skills strands

-Language comprehension (listening and reading)

-Language production (Speaking and writing).

French in KS2

In ... class we have been language detectives, using bilingual dictionaries to work out what our topic is going to be this term. Our focus was to think about the gender of the nouns, le is the masculine article and la is the feminine.
