Modern foreign languages are part of our curriculum and we teach French in years 1-6 at St Joseph’s. The children enjoy learning different words, phrases and songs to support their understanding. We aim to develop confidence when exploring and speaking in other languages whilst motivating and inspiring our pupils to understand the culture of other countries. Our curriculum milestones outline the specific detail about the essential characteristics of linguists that we work to achieve.

Tracking Progress in MFL

MFL is tracked against a range of objectives: speaking, reading, writing and understanding the culture of the countries in which the language is spoken. We use the Chris Quigley Milestones to inform our judgments in this subject.
