Modern Foreign Language

Our MFL Curriculum Statement

The core language taught at Nicol Mere Primary School is French. It is our intention that all children in KS2 will access quality first teaching of French which will develop our children’s knowledge and progressively develop their skills in languages. They will use and apply an increasing bank of vocabulary thus equipping the children with the skills in order to be confident global citizens.  In Lower Key Stage 2, children acquire basic skills and understanding of French with a strong emphasis placed on developing their Speaking and Listening skills. These will be embedded and further developed in Upper Key Stage 2, alongside Reading and Writing, gradually progressing onto more complex language concepts and greater learner autonomy.
