Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) at St Peter’s School delivers a valuable educational, social and cultural experience to children with a broad and balanced curriculum that engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of language.
Our MFL curriculum (delivered from Reception to 6) provides excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life. Pupils from Reception to Year 4 develop their skills in both French and Spanish whilst Year 5 and 6 pupils study German.
At St Peter’s, we believe that a high-quality language education fosters pupil’s curiosity, and deepens their understanding of the world. The teaching of MFL at St Peter’s enables our children to express ideas and thoughts in another language, as well as respond to speakers verbally and in writing. Children are given opportunities to communicate practically, learning new ways of thinking and reading great literature in its original language. The natural links between languages and other areas of the curriculum enriches the overall teaching and learning experience.
At St Peter’s School, we equip and empower our children to appreciate the culturally diverse world around us.
