Modern Foreign Languages
Our MFL curriculum at Charlton C of E Primary School aims to promote confidence, curiosity and enjoyment in learning French. We achieve this by developing learners’ ability to communicate in both spoken and written French for practical purposes and for fun. We aim to enable learners to speak and write French with increasing confidence, demonstrating substantial progress across Key Stage 2. Our aim is also to develop and foster an understanding and appreciation of French-speaking cultures and their similarities and differences to our own by looking at authentic texts and listening to authentic songs, stories and rhymes. At Charlton Primary School, we want to equip all learners with language learning strategies, including using a bi-lingual dictionary, strategies for memorisation and retrieval and using context and prior knowledge to aid comprehension, all of which will provide a foundation for learning further languages at secondary school. At Charlton C of E Primary School, we follow the CGP Salut! scheme of work for delivering the French Curriculum. This enables us to cover the curriculum at the correct pace. It contains a vast amount of content to aid teachers to deliver French to a high standard.
