MFL (French) - Curriculum rationale

This MFL scheme of work and the accompanying resources are designed to help support the delivery of the statutory modern foreign languages curriculum as outlined in the National Curriculum published 2014.


The sequence of progression for our scheme of work has been carefully planned and considered in order for the lessons to introduce the vocabulary needed to complete topics and to link into future topics as they emerge. However, the design also enables fluid use of the scheme so that teachers may choose their own order of units to fit in with their teaching, prior knowledge of the children and any ongoing projects or topics within their classroom. With each unit, there is an introduction video tutorial, a comic-based story to support the introduction of new vocabulary and accompanying worksheets. 


The resources that have been created carefully follow the scheme of work and are designed to be completed within the classroom, alongside our supporting online games, which can be completed at home or as an extension/introduction to the lesson. There are several types of resources included within each unit, though not all resources need to be used. The different resources are there for choice and balance and for the teacher to meet the needs of their class.

Our scheme of work will be regularly reviewed in order to ensure the content is fit for purpose and in line with current curriculum guidelines.
