As the UK is an increasingly multicultural society, we have a duty to provide our children with an understanding of other cultures and languages. At Moseley C of E we believe strongly in the benefit of this and therefore implemented the teaching of French for all KS2 children (Y3 to Y6) from September 2010.
Learning a language enriches the curriculum, providing excitement, enjoyment and challenge for children and teachers, helping to create enthusiastic learners and to develop positive attitudes to language learning throughout life. The natural links between languages and other areas of the curriculum can enhance the overall teaching and learning experience. The skills, knowledge and understanding gained make a major contribution to the development of children's oracy and literacy and to their understanding of their own culture/s and those of others. Language also lies at the heart of ideas about individual identity and community, and learning another language can do a great deal to shape children's ideas in this critical area as well as giving them a new perspective on their own language.

At Moseley Cof E the children learn French with Madam Simpson, who is our specialist MFL teacher. This provides the children with a deep level of subject knowledge allowing for a comprehensive MFL education.
