French / Spanish

MFL Intent Statement

At Bottesford Junior School, we believe that learning a language enriches the curriculum helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning through life. Our Year 3 and 4 pupils learn French and our Year 5 and 6 pupils learn Spanish. This is to enable them to have a good foundation basis for starting secondary school. We currently use the Language Angels scheme of work as a basis to teach French and Spanish with a belief that the skills, knowledge and understanding gained contribute to the development of children’s oracy and literacy and to their understanding of their own culture and those of others. We use a number of techniques to encourage the children to have an active engagement in French and Spanish. These include –

  • Games
  • Role Play
  • Actions songs and rhymes
  • Reading and writing materials
  • ICT
