Modern Foreign Languages

The teaching of a modern foreign language is provided for every child in Key Stage 2 at Sherwood School. The school’s language of choice for the purpose of resourcing is French, however other languages may be taught according to the expertise of individual teachers. Visiting teachers and students from local secondary schools offer opportunities for pupils to experience German, Spanish or other MFL.

In Key Stage 2 lessons in MFL take place regularly and follow the five strands of the Framework for Languages, these being Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing, and lntercultural Understanding. In Key stage 1 pupils engage in short activities in MFL such as answering the register in French, and simple songs and games.
