Intent Statement

‘ If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language that goes to his heart.’ Nelson Mandela

At Larkholme, all pupils in Key stage 2 are taught French. Our MFL curriculum is designed to develop children’s basic skills in speaking and listening, reading and writing whilst meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum and laying the foundations for learning a language at KS3. The MFL curriculum is a progressive curriculum which constantly builds on what the children have previously learnt. In addition, it aims to promote an understanding of France and French culture, developing the children as global citizens and fostering mutual respect and tolerance for other cultures.
