MFL curriculum

The Faber's MFL curriculum statement


The intention of the Spanish curriculum at The Faber is that children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We encourage children’s confidence and creative skills. We strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language. We help children develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries.


Our MFL curriculum is designed to progressively develop children skills in languages, through regular taught lessons from a subject professional from our feeder high school. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. All our children in KS2 will have regular language lessons. In order to prepare our pupils for their learning at Painsley the curriculum for 2019-2020 will be two terms of Spanish and one term of German. For 2020-2021 pupils will receive two terms of German and one term of Spanish.


The learning challenges used, to plan and teach MFL, ensure that children are accessing work at age related expectations, with regular opportunities to be challenged through higher-level objectives. Children are assessed according to age related expectations in line with curriculum requirements.
