Modern Foreign Languages
At Clapham Manor our Modern Foreign Language (MFL) curriculum aims to promote a love and enthusiasm for foreign language learning, with plentiful opportunities to develop children’s listening, speaking, reading and writing skills both through French and, Mandarin lessons (in Year 6).
Foreign language learning provides an excellent platform to explore cultural differences, which challenges stereotypes and prejudice whilst promoting diversity and equality. As a result, children reflect on and celebrate the diverse nature of their local community and the wider world, as well as express their own cultural identities in a positive way.
The curriculum enables children to understand and respond to both spoken and written language, as well as enabling them to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity. Our MFL curriculum provides a foundation for learning further languages, and equips children with the skills to apply this, giving them a thirst for learning languages and curiosity in the world.
