MFL - Background Nuffield Languages Enquiry (1998 – 2000) Languages for All: Languages for Life (National Languages Strategy 2002) Primary National Strategy (2004)
Every child should have the opportunity throughout Key Stage 2 to study a foreign language and develop their interest in the culture of other nations. They should have access to high quality teaching and learning opportunities, making use of native speakers and e-learning. By age 11 they should have the opportunity to reach a recognised level of competence on the Common European Framework and for that achievement to be recognised through a national scheme. (Languages for All: Languages for Life)
Supportive Developments CILT: the National Centre for Languages NACELL: the National Advisory Centre on Early Language Learning National Director for Languages KS2 NC & QCA schemes and non-statutory guidance The Languages Ladder / Asset Languages Additional funding (Primary Strategy) KS2 Framework for MFL FLAs for primary schools Links with Secondary schools (specialist & feeder)

Suggested Planning Spring Term – immersion in French language Try out basics, e.g. greetings, numbers, commands classroom_instructions.shtml classroom_instructions.shtml Use ICT resources to grab childrens interest, e.g. Funny Bear KS2 Year 3 Term 1 week-by-week Resource Pack to get started Learn together with children 40% French words = cognates!
Songs tmwww.songsforteaching.com/frenchsongs.h tm Allons Chanter CD, e.g. for phonics sound ou – game coucou et hibou French childrens characters, e.g. Funny Bear, Pigloo, Bebe Lilly.
