King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success


Our MFL Intent at King Edwards

At King Edward we are proud to be a multi culturally diverse school. We embrace the fact that in addition to English, 21 different languages are spoken by the families of King Edward primary. We are also aware that for many of our children French will be their third language.

Our intent with the teaching of French at King Edward is both to build children’s curiosity, deepen their understanding of the world and to foster an interest in languages that will be built on in secondary school and beyond.

The teaching of French will enable children to express their ideas and thoughts in another common language. Our children will have the opportunity to develop skills in speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar which will also expand on their knowledge of English by comparing the similarities between the two languages. French teaching will not just be about the language but learning about the culture and way of life. By doing this we intend to encourage the children to consider the wonderful variety of cultures and people who share our world.

French at King Edwards

In each year group the children will cover three different French topics. These topics are specifically picked to link to their learning topics. They are also designed to develop their French knowledge and skills throughout KS2 to prepare them for secondary and beyond.


In each unit of learning, the children will get the opportunity to develop their French reading, speaking, listening, writing and grammar skills. This is done through a range of learning activities including interactive games, educational songs and more!
