Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Champion
Miss Patel is our subject champion for Modern Foreign Languages here at Lane End, and is part of the 'The World and Words' Curriculum Team. She has a clear vision for this area of the curriculum in our primary school - and is committed to broadening pupils’ understanding of the world and developing strong, long-life linguistic skills within an enriched learning environment so that our children learn to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people.
She has thought carefully about the design of the Lane End MFL curriculum and has built learning themes and topics that are to be taught in each year group that covers all aspects of the National Curriculum and meets the needs of our learners. Miss Patel wants languages to be a part of the cultural richness of our society and the world we live and learn.
Our children will learn a breadth of MFL based knowledge, acquire a deepened vocabulary and understanding, develop and apply their skills as linguists each year as they move through school. Miss Patel believes that our children should develop a deepening understanding, and how history affects us all still today.
Her vision is to continually improve standards through an engaging and challenging curriculum which values the strengths of all and celebrates success. Competency in a foreign language unlocks the technological, enterprise and vocational abilities which enhance the employability skills of our pupils. Miss Patel’s aim is to promote cultural awareness and develop our young people into global citizens of the 21st century.
Below is the broad overview of our Lane End MFL curriculum. Miss Patel has included a short summary of what the curriculum content each topic or theme covers, and then has highlighted the key objectives the children will work towards in each year group. These key objectives develop the children's knowledge, skills, understanding, and build and progress each year.
