Modern Foreign Languages

What is the intent of Modern Foreign Languages in our school?

At Cranfield Church of England Academy, we believe that a high quality Modern Foreign Language education should introduce young children to another language in a way that is inspiring, motivating and enjoyable.

How are Modern Foreign Languages implemented in our school?

French is taught to children in Year Three and Year Four through the use of Salut!

This is a comprehensive and systematic scheme of work for the teaching of French with complementary resources such as interactive whiteboard resources, songs, games and stories.

It ensures clear progression in the development of skills and allows the learner to be fully immersed in learning French. French is taught by a teacher or cover supervisor in discrete lessons for at least 20 minutes a week. Further opportunities for the incidental learning of French, for example answering the register in French, are embedded into classroom life.

French skills and knowledge are assessed each term against the Cranfield Curriculum objectives.
