Modern Foreign Languages
Intent for MFL
Our aim is to provide high quality MFL education which equips children to develop oracy skills and understand different cultures and societies regardless of their starting points in life. At Grange View we expose our pupils to French, building their simple conversational language to communicate with others outside of their community. We want our children to be able to operate in the 21st century using their transferable language learning strategies and inclusive attitudes.
It is important for the children to understand that the world that they live in is vibrant and full of lots of different communities. As we believe it is important for the children to learn about other cultures and communities through MFL, we celebrate the European Day of Languages annually. Through this, the children learn about the language, culture and lifestyle of these countries.

European Languages Day
For this year's EDL we focussed on all things Greek. Every class had the benefit of tasting Greek food and learning a Greek Dance to show to the other classes. Each key stage then focussed on other elements special to Greece such as the flag in Early Years and the Olympics in KS1. Each class learnt some simple phrases and in KS2 they found out about traditions and customs.
