At Redhill Primary School, the foreign language taught is French. Our aim is to provide learners with a rich and active curriculum that will enable each child to develop an interest in learning a different language. We help children to develop their awareness of cultural differences and build on their knowledge to lead them through to Key Stage 3. The intent is that we want our pupils to develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages and find them enjoyable and stimulating. We want to prepare our children to become global citizens and provide them with different opportunities to experience and develop cultural capital. We began delivering French lessons w/b 28.9.2020 due to COVID and supporting our children back in the first half term after lockdown.
We will be able to measure impact using pupil voice as well as identifying the growing confidence and knowledge of the French language.
The learning challenges used, to plan and teach MFL, ensure that children are accessing work at age related expectations, with regular opportunities to be challenged through higher-level objectives.
Children are assessed according to age related expectations in line with curriculum requirements. This is done in line with the school assessment calendar three times each year using DC Pro, tracking progress and attainment. The children also have the opportunity to self-asses their learning for each module as well. These resources are easily accessible for the class teachers and will provide further support for both the teachers and learners.
COVID -19 Statement
On return to school in September we completed a baseline assessment of all children in Years 2-6. This allowed us to identify gaps in the National Curriculum, we have then added this content onto our long term plan which will allow for catch up coverage to be complete by the end of the academic year 20/21.
