How we study Modern Foreign Languages

 

 

At Round House, we follow the scheme of learning from 'Language Angels' to teach French to children in KS2. Language Angels is an award-winning, all-areas covering set of resources to help teach languages to primary school children. The scheme works by providing a wide range of teaching units to cover all of the curriculum requirements for Modern Foreign Languages. These units begin with 'Early Language', designed for children with no prior knowledge of French, moving on to 'Intermediate', suitable for Years 4 and 5, and finally ends with 'Progressive', designed for Year 6. Lessons include power-point presentations, games, songs, and differentiated activities to help the children learn a language (in our case, French) and develop life-long skills for language.

 

The key documents from the Language Angels scheme, and links to view these are below, are: 

  • the Curriculum Compliance checklist, which clearly demonstrates how we cover the various requirements for teaching MFL
  • the Progression Map, which shows how progression is made across the key skills for each teaching type (Early Language, Intermediate and Progressive)
  • the Grammar Grid, which outlines the progression of grammar knowledge throughout Years 3-6.
  • an outline of all units covered
