MFL - French


At FPPF we believe speaking another language is a valuable, life-enhancing skill. It opens doors for work and travel as well as develops better understanding and appreciation of other cultures.  Children progressively learn a core set of vocabulary and grammatical structures so they can confidently use them to communicate in speaking and writing. At the same time, they develop a bank of language learning strategies that will support their ongoing learning journey.  Experiencing the thrill of successful communication, developing linguistic curiosity and having the knowledge of how to learn a language gives our children the motivation and skills needed to succeed in their future studies.



  • MFLC1: Listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding; develop increasingly accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are speaking or reading aloud

  • MFLC2: Read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing; write in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures

  • MFLC3: Explore language patterns through songs, poems, games and rhymes

  • MFLC4: Understanding of basic grammatical structures and how to apply these to build sentences and communicate what they want to say


Curriculum Overview


Curriculum Sticky Knowledge

Sticky Knowledge is the key knowledge that we have chosen for the children to know after each topic. This knowledge is built upon, brought back into the working memory or recapped (retention & retrieval work) through the subsequent topics, years and even through different subjects. The aim is to retain this key knowledge by making a change to the child's long term memory.

Within all subjects, the expanse of knowledge is vast. We have chosen the key sticky knowledge that we feel would benefit the children through their KS2 journey and to help them understand and enjoy the subject area ready for KS3.
