Discovering new words, exploring new cultures. 

Through the teaching of Modern Foreign Languages we intend to provide children with a gateway to other cultures, to prepare children to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a multi-cultural community. We aim to grow children's confidence and curiosity when learning languages, building firm foundations for future language learning.  


At Melbourne Primary School we teach French and Spanish on a biannual rotation. This is done using the BBC Languages scheme of work. Children are taught all four skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing. We help to develop children's speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. Similarly, reading and writing is taught through the use of games and songs, progressing as the children grow in confidence and gain more language knowledge.

Below you will find a document that maps the knowledge and the skills that the children will learn across Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2.  Please click the link below to be directed to this document.
