MFL (Modern Foreign Languages) Learning a foreign language fosters pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. INTENT: Our bespoke curriculum enables pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing. Our pupils focus on familiar and routine matters using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary. Pegasus use the interactive language programme ‘Rigolo’ to enable children to: listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding; explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words; engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures; appreciate stories, songs, poems and rhymes in the language; broaden their vocabulary and write phrases from memory, expressing their ideas clearly; describe people, places, things and actions orally and in writing; understand basic grammar appropriate to the language being studied, including (where relevant): feminine, masculine and neuter forms and the conjugation of high-frequency verbs; key features and patterns of the language; how to apply these, for instance, to build sentences; and how these differ from or are similar to English. At Pegasus we hope to lay the foundations for further foreign language teaching at secondary level, recognising that our pupils are global citizens.
