Modern Foreign Languages

At Mayhill Junior School, our ML curriculum recognises how learning a foreign language is a necessary part of being a member of a multi-cultural society – something not particularly evident within Mayhill’s Village community, whilst also providing an opportunity to explore another culture.

We aim to develop the children’s curiosity and allow them to deepen their understanding of the wider world.

Mayhill’s teaching should enable children to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It also provides opportunities for them to communicate through practical purposes, learn new ways of using their critical thinking skills and, by the end of year 6, be confident in expressing themselves verbally and in writing in French.
