Modern Foreign Languages / MFL

At Hornbeam Primary School the language we study is French.

We believe a high quality languages education should foster children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. At Hornbeam we want our children to develop the skills and knowledge to enable them to interpret, create and exchange meaning with other cultures. Learning a language helps to open further opportunities later in life.

French is taught as a discrete subject in KS2 (Year 3 – Year 6)

We use Twinkl Planit French as the basis for our language curriculum. This ensures progressive coverage of the skills and knowledge required by the National Curriculum.

The focus is on Listening and Speaking as well as Reading and Writing.  We use interactive resources as well as songs and games to enhance our learning opportunities.
