MFL (Modern Foreign Languages)

We follow the Primary National Curriculum for Languages.


A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.


Pupils at Motcombe Primary School learn to speak French. This is introduced through greetings and songs in Key Stage 1 and is taught through specific French lessons in Key Stage 2.
