Our Curriculum : Modern Foreign Languages French

 ‘Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.’

The National Curriculum 2014 - KS2 PoS for Languages – Purpose of study

Language is an essential means of every day communication and interaction. Learning another language raises awareness of the multi-lingual and multi-cultural world in which we live. It introduces an international dimension to pupils’ learning, giving them an insight into their own culture and those of others.

Modern Foreign Languages - French


At East Hunsbury Primary School, it is our intention to provide a language curriculum that is aspirational, enabling and inclusive, as well as being a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for all. We intend for our pupils to develop communication and literacy skills that will provide the foundation for their future language learning.

We intend children to develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities between a foreign language and English.

The intention of our MFL curriculum is:

  • To deliver the learning of the French language and its culture in enjoyable and interesting ways.
  • To embed the essential skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing.
  • To extend pupils’ cultural knowledge so that they develop an awareness of the similarities and differences between cultures.
  • To foster an interest in and a thirst for learning other languages.
  • To lay the foundations for future language learning.
  • To broaden their frame of reference and knowledge within the wider curriculum.
  • To be ambitious.
