(Let's speak french)
In MFL we learn to speak french.
At Oakhill, we consistently promote the study of a foreign language (in our case, French) because of its increasing importance in both personal development and in global society. We have a visit to France every 2 years for Years 5/6 so that pupils have the opportunity to practice their French speaking for real. Our lessons are taught by Mrs Alliband who is a fluent French speaker.
Oakhill’s MFL curriculum is vibrant, inclusive, systematic and communicates to pupils the principles and benefits to language learning. Our intent is to achieve high quality provision so that all pupils at Oakhill benefit from the unique social and educational advantages and experiences learning a language can bring to pupils at primary school. It provides pupils with a grounding of skills and knowledge in linguistic competence creating a sound basis for further study at KS3 and promotes positive attitudes towards in linguistic diversity in their school and beyond.
