Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

Intent

Our intention for MFL, is that children are taught to develop an interest in learning languages in a way that is enjoyable, stimulating and will encourage children’s curiosity about language.  

We help children develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries, learning to communicate and allow themselves to be understood by a wider community.  We strive to apply their Spanish learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning so they are successful as they move through their education.

Whole School Overview

The children at Beacon View have recently started learning a modern foreign language.  The language they are learning is Spanish.  Spanish has been chosen because it is the one of the most widely spoken languages in the World.

 

At Beacon View we use the scheme Espanol!Espanol! to teach the children how to speak Spanish.  We also have a member of staff who is fluent in Spanish and so able to offer help and support with planning and teaching to all teachers.
