Modern Foreign Language

MFL Policy Document

MFL Statement of Intent

French is taught at Harewood Primary School. We believe that the learning of 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 another language gives children a new perspective on the world where many have not visited beyond the local area, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others.

French is taught in a weekly lesson from Y3 to Y6 using the Language Angels scheme that incorporates speaking and listening, reading and writing French. The scheme is visually attractive, interactive and engaging to the children.
