All our children, all the way through from Nursery are encouraged to celebrate language, be it their first language, or English as a second language. All children experience playing games involving languages from a range of cultures throughout their primary education.
However, in Key Stage 2, MFL is a statutory subject and the children in Y3 and Y4 experience French being taught, and in Y5 and Y6 children experience Mandarin being taught by a specialist teacher.
The programmes of study identified within the National Curriculum are covered through a range of activities involving children doing oral work, recorded work, as well as playing a range of games and learning songs in different languages. Children also learn some of the cultural aspects behind the languages they are speaking.
