Planning

 

EYFS / KS1:

It is not statutory for the Foundation Stage or KS1 to deliver MFL. However, we believe that it gives a good foundation for their learning of French throughout the school. Therefore, in both EYFS and KS1 the classes will take part in a French Day every half term.

Each year group has been given a set of simple learning expectations for them to work on during these days such as counting to 10 in French.

Nursery

  

Introduce French. Where is France? Look at the flag.
Learn simple greeting words.
Listen to stories, rhymes or songs.

  

Reception

  

Recognise some familiar words and respond to them. (Can they respond to hello and goodbye)
Learn numbers 1-5
Listen to stories, rhymes or songs.

  

Year 1
