‘A pathway to grow, be curious and discover’

Modern Foreign Languages

At Homerswood we focus on enabling pupils to make progress in one language, French. Children are encouraged to listen, and ask and answer questions.


They have an opportunity to speak in sentences and engage in conversations. They are taught to appreciate French songs, poems and rhymes. They learn to demonstrate an understanding of reading and writing simple words and sentences, and are also taught to develop the appropriate pronunciation.

MFL Guidance 2020-2021

Autumn 2021


Welcome to a new academic year of MFL at Homerswood. We are very excited to continue our passion for communicating in other languages and will be continuing our teaching of french in key Stage 2. We follow a rich and engaging curriculum supporting listening, reading, writing and speaking skills giving our children the confidence to communicate in another language.

We also celebrate the many other languages spoken throughout our school with lots of extra language celebration days. Check this website for any updates and news to share.


A great start to the Autumn term so far. Here are some examples of year 5 completing some french sentences about which pets they have. They are applying their knowledge of animals, numbers and the verb "to have".

Homerswood Celebrated a "French Day" where all year groups took part in a celebration of languages. Part of this day involved practicing their french speaking skills to order some french food at a cafe! They made their choice between a brioche or a croissant by saying "je voudrais" and not forgetting their manners!

A great way to learn new languages is through rhythm. At Homerswood we use lots of catchy songs, rhymes and chants to help remember new vocabulary. Here is Year 3 showing how they remember the different "body parts", can you recognise the song?

Here is what some of our pupils think about learning French at Homerswood. Some quotes speak about being able to apply their language skills when they visit France, and others love the interactive activities we do in class.

Year 9 students, from Monkswalk School, visited year 6 to share some fun Spanish games and activities.
