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 and home environment. At Grange View we give our pupils life-skills that will enable them to embrace and appreciate the many different languages and lifestyles that surround them in order for them to flourish and achieve their god given potential. 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. Our MFL curriculum focuses on a progression of knowledge and skills in the four main areas of the MFL curriculum: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes during children’s time in school to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. This is reviewed annually to address gaps in learning and ensures it is not only broad and balanced but continually engages and enthuse the pupils.

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.

Enjoying Languages at Grange View

Every year on the 26th September we celebrate European Languages Day. This academic year we focused on Spain. The children enjoyed trying different foods, learning a dance and about the culture and language of the country.
