Our intent when learning a foreign language is that we provide an opening to other cultures. We intend to inspire our learners to be passionate about languages other than English. We aim to lay the foundations for the future learning of language.
Language learning at Brookmead helps pupils develop their skills in listening carefully and critically, in inferring meaning and making connections, e.g. where words share common origins.
At Brookmead School we teach French as our focus MFL. Learners are exposed to other languages through the celebration of langauges that members of our community speak as a first language and through other opportunities such as theme days and a focus on greetings in a language other than English.
We have a clear and consistent progressive approach to the teaching of French at Brookmead through our overview, progression in skills and use of resources.
