Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

At Leverington Primary, we teach French across Key Stage 2 using the CUSP scheme of work to support the teaching and learning of French. This provides clear progression for the development of speaking, listening and vocabulary acquisition. In order to teach languages in a memorable way, we use a variety of resources, including art and role play, to enhance the learning opportunities for all pupils.

CUSP has purposefully been built around the principles of evidence-led practice. Each unit of study focuses on phonics, grammatical structures, reading, writing, oracy and vocabulary.

Key areas of focus have been deliberately selected to ensure that pupils are equipped with the knowledge and language that will serve them in engaging with important and useful topics, such as the environment, wellbeing and travel. It focuses not only on vocabulary acquisition, but on the building blocks of learning a new language.
