MFL at Millfield Primary 2021
"A different language is a different vision of life."
MFL lead - Robin Smith
Learning a foreign language is a necessary part of being a member of a multi-cultural society and provides an opening to other cultures. At Millfield Primary School, it is our aim to provide a high-quality MFL education, which fosters children’s curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping children to study and work in other countries.
At Millfield, the core language taught is Spanish. Our MFL curriculum is designed to develop children skills in languages, through weekly lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around relevant topics. Our planning is based upon the Rachel Hawkes scheme of work that covers all the components of the NC PoS. It is our intention that all children in KS2 have the opportunity to learn Spanish through songs, speech, games and other activities. It is our aim to make learning a new language fun and useful in the children’s lives.
