It is our intent at Milking Bank Primary School to provide all of our children with a high-quality education in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL), which develops their love of learning about other languages and cultures.
Our current MFL taught is Spanish, however we strive to provide children with opportunities to experience a range of other languages.
It is our intention to ensure that by the end of our children’s primary education, they have acquired an understanding of both spoken and written Spanish, confidence to speak in Spanish with others and know how important other languages can be in their future.
Our MFL curriculum is designed to develop not only our children’s language skills, but also their love of learning a language. It progressively develops language skills, through regularly taught lessons. This allows the children to acquire new language then use and apply it in a range of different scenarios and topics.
Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As their confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences. Our school also has a link with a Spanish school, where children are able to send and receive letters, emails and videos.
Pupil voice is also used to further develop the MFL curriculum. This is achieved through subject leaders and members of the Senior Leadership Team looking and discussing children’s work with them.
