If we can dream it ... we can do it!



The intent of the MFL French curriculum at Ladywood Primary School is to ensure the progressive development of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing skills in French in an enjoyable and stimulating way. We aim to embed these skills to enable the children to use and apply their language learning in a variety of contexts and to lay the foundations for future language learning. We provide an introduction to the culture of France (and other Francophone countries and communities) so that children develop a tolerance and respect of different people and places, whilst fostering their curiosity and understanding of the wider world. Discrete French lessons with a French speaking teacher means children are exposed to authentic, conversational French and they are also provided with further opportunities to listen to native French speakers.
