French

The intention of our MFL curriculum at Aughton Junior Academy is to develop an interest in and thirst for learning other languages. We aim to introduce the learning of the French language and the understanding of its culture in enjoyable and stimulating ways. We hope to embed the essential skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing. We aim to build the children’s ‘culture capital’ so that they are aware of similarities and differences between cultures. In short, we hope to lay the foundations for future language learning.

Our MFL curriculum has been designed to progressively develop skills in French. These ensure children acquire a bank of vocabulary organized around topics. They ensure development is progressive as they build on previous knowledge from units already studied.

All children in KS2 are taught French in a weekly discreet lesson. This is delivered by a specialist languages teacher from Aston Academy.

Monitoring and assessment is an on-going process. Teachers use ‘assessment for learning’ as to inform planning for future lessons.
