Welcome to Primary Phase MFL (Modern Foreign Languages).
The MFL curriculum at William Hulme’s Grammar School provides children with the opportunity to introduce them to the language and give an understanding of everyday life in French-speaking countries. Running through the curriculum are three vertical concepts that enable children to continually make links to prior learning: Conversational Language, Descriptive Language and Culture. Within each topic, pupils will study a specific area in depth that relates to one of the vertical concepts. The early focus on conversational language evolves into descriptive language as years progress because lessons are increasingly taught in French by specialist teachers with constant application on the conversational skills. The emphasis is on laying a solid foundation for further language learning, so that children can start to understand when listening and reading simple language, and work from the outset to be able to speak and write when the context is familiar.
