Modern Foreign Languages


Our vision is for children to develop their language skills alongside a ‘love of learning’ for a different language, to help them to become all-round global citizens.


At Marton Manor, the intention of our MFL curriculum is to develop an interest in and to have a 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 all four language learning skills in French. We are currently using the iLanguages scheme of work to deliver our French lessons. This ensures that as children acquire vocabulary organised around topics, they develop their skills from single words, to phrases and finally sentences. The lessons ensure development is progressive as they build on previous knowledge and develop an understanding of grammar and phonemes. Lessons are stimulating and interactive and provide opportunities to engage in games, songs and activities as a way of embedding vocabulary.

All children in KS2 are taught French weekly . The lessons are delivered by a language specialist who comes into school once a week. 


Impact is measured through key questioning skills built into lessons and child-led peer and self-assessment. Termly assessment is carried out to tailor teaching and learning effectively.
