MFL Policy

The Modern Foreign Language taught at Headfield Junior School is French. Through the teaching of a Modern Foreign Language we aim to increase children’s linguistic competence through regular timetabled French sessions; to exploit cultural links and experiences when opportunities arise; to promote positive attitudes towards language learning through a range of activities and to develop listening skills and phonological awareness.

French Day 2018:

 The aim of the day was to get children passionate and enthusiastic about learning French! It was also a great way to fire up children's passion for language learning and their curiosity about the French language and culture. The children and staff had a really fun day and did some wonderful work.

 

Reading:

There is a selection of French (and dual language) books in the library available for children to take home and enjoy at their leisure. We have recently purchased some more traditional fairy tale stories which the children are excited to loan out and take home. 

  

Reading Competition:

Starting in Autumn 2 we will be holding a French reading competition. Each time a child loans out a French book they will receive a sticker on their French passport...once they have collected 10 stickers they win a prize! :)

French Lunch Time Club:

Every week we run a French club which is available for pupils in Years 3 and 4. This is the perfect chance for children to practise their speaking skills and apply what they have learnt. We have a variety of different games that the children enjoy playing with. We will be opening this opportunity up for our Year 5 & 6 children after half term too!
