MFL at St.Richard`s


We feel it is important that we give our pupils a wide and varied experience of the world. We do this in many ways at St Richards, including exploring the French language and other cultures from around the world.


At St Richards we teach French to all pupils; from Nursery to Year 6. Children learn core vocabulary as well as the culture and traditions of France. The lessons focus heavily around speaking and listening with plenty of practise of the French language. Children participate in interactive activities such as games, songs, videos and role play, and in KS2 an emphasis on written French is added.


We work in partnership with our link school in France Sainte Marie Pie x School to plan and deliver an exciting curriculum across the school. We also celebrate all things French in a special themed week once a year.
