Headteacher - Mrs Sally Buckton

Guiseley Primary School

Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

 

Children are taught French throughout KS2 from Year 3 to Year 6. From time to time the school also offers Spanish and German as an extra-curricular club for KS2 children. 
We aim to develop children’s experience of language acquisition and encourage curiosity about languages. The children will extend their understanding of what they hear and read, and improve their ability to express themselves in speech and writing. They will extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences between other languages and English. The children will also strengthen their sense of identity through learning about the culture in France, comparing it with their own culture.
