Learning another language will allow our children to become more confident learners who are globally-aware, tolerant, curious, motivated and aspire to achieve their best through hard work.
All lessons have clear learning intentions which are shared and reviewed with the pupils effectively. A range of strategies will support the pupils such as:
- reading a variety of French texts,
- listening to a variety of French speaking,
- writing in French using appropriate vocabulary, tenses and grammar and
- speaking in French using correct tenses, vocabulary and salutations.
All teachers are responsible for monitoring how their children are progressing. This is overseen by the MFL leader on a termly basis.
By the end of each year, pupils are expected to achieve the expected level of development in their year group objectives. We will assess them based on the KS2 Programme of Study for Foreign Languages that comes with the Salut! Program.
As good practitioners we are continually assessing our pupils. Teachers will assess for, during and after learning; this allows the children to benefit at each stage of their learning. Oral feedback, written feedback and questioning are all different ways a teacher could assess MFL. At the end of each term, the MFL Lead will collate data from the class teachers for which children are working below standards/ towards standards, at standards or above standards.
The children will be frequently referring back to what they have already learnt in their past lessons. Languages re-enforce that children need to revisit old learning, in order to continually build a bank of vocabulary and grammatical understanding.
