Modern Foreign Languages at Alverton


French at Alverton is really taking off! Thanks to the North Yorkshire MFL planning, teachers at Alverton are more than equipped to deliver this popular subject! Specialist teaching in the lower end of KS2 is proving to engage all the children as they enthusiastically acquire skills in this language, whilst at the upper end of the school, children are now beginning to engage with their peers at a school in France. This year, identification games were played and Christmas cards were exchanged – next year, we are going to develop this link much further so that not only language skills can be improved but also cultural knowledge and understanding can be enhanced. In addition, children in EYFS and KS1 will soon be singing their hearts out in French and will be able to speak and understand simple commands, readying them for more formal, yet fun, immersion in the language on their entry to KS2. We aim to hold a ‘French’ afternoon at least once a year, with the children participating in sampling some French cuisine, playing some traditional French games and researching and exploring aspects of French culture. 








At Alverton, we believe that learning another language is a crucial part of the children’s education, which allows children to build self-confidence as well as developing their communication skills. In our modern society, children now have the ability to communicate with others from around the world. We want to equip the children with the skills and confidence to be able to do this. We explain to the children the benefits and purpose of learning a language too, such as being able to communicate with others whilst on holiday abroad, or having a better understanding of different cultures. Our vision for MFL at Alverton is to encourage the children to be inquisitive about the world.
