Our aims in MFL
At Bourne we are always looking to broaden horizons and to open up new experiences and learning to all of our children. Being able to study a different language and learn about another country and culture gives a whole new perspective on the world.
Speaking and listening are the two most important strands of language learning and we try to promote opportunities to listen to authentic French speakers and to practise new words and phrases frequently in the target language.
Reading and writing also form part of our curriculum with a focus on phonics to help learn the different sounds in French and associate them with the written word. Children are also encouraged to write words and phrases, gradually building up to sentences and short paragraphs.
We are fortunate enough to have access to a wide range of learning materials and resources to broaden understanding of French and the French speaking world.
