Modern Foreign Languages
Our subject lead for MFL in North Frodingham year 3/4 Teacher
As we are federated with North Frodingham Primary School some subjects share a subject lead between both schools.
At Beeford CE (VC) Primary School and North Frodingham Primary School we believe that learning a foreign
language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop
communication skills including key skills of speaking and listening and extends their knowledge of how language
works. Learning a new language gives children a new perspective of the world, encouraging them to understand
their own cultures and those of others.
French is the modern foreign language that we teach in our schools. The curriculum that we follow is based on the
Key Stage 2 Framework for MFL and the National Curriculum 2014.
We use ‘Ilanguages’ Mixed age scheme of work to support planning and teaching.
The children in Years 5 and 6 have a French penpal that they communicate with during their time in KS2.
The French language is regularly displayed in school and photographs are added to the school’s MFL portfoli o.
The children’s’ French work is evidenced in French folders and workbooks.
A progression of skills has been mapped for Year 3/4 and 5/6 and is used to ensure that children have opportunities
to improve their work and progress further.
Whole school French theme events take place annually.
MFL work is commended in our regular Celebration Assemblies
