Modern Foreign Languages

At Kirkbampton CE Primary School we endeavour to develop a love of languages through the teaching of a modern foreign language (MFL) in a fun and enjoyable way.

We aim to:

  • Foster an interest in learning other languages
  • Introduce young children to another language in a way that is enjoyable and fun;
  • Stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language;
  • Encourage children to be aware that language has structure and that the structure differs from one language to another
  • Help the children develop their awareness of cultural differences and similarities in other countries;
  • Increase their speaking and listening skills;
  • Lay the foundations for future study through the development of language learning strategies
  • Reinforce and expand their knowledge and understanding of their own language.

French is taught to children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 by class teachers.
