The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:
- understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
- speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
- can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
- discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied
At Hapton we use the scheme Language Angels to support our MFL curriculum. It is designed to progressively develop children skills in languages, through regular taught lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking, listening,reading and writing skills through a wide variety of ways that include conversational work, singing activities and fun interactive games. As confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences.
Our MFL scheme is still in it’s infancy, changing and adapting to meet the needs of our children. Having enthusiastic teachers plays a massive part in raising the profile of MFL in our school.
Encouraging parents to attend open day events and children accessing the Language Angels games at home has made a positive impact on not only learning, but the love of language too.
