Modern Foreign Languages
At Rosehill School, Foreign Languages is taught at KS2, and Modern Foreign Languages & Cultures at KS3.
At Rosehill, Modern Foreign languages and Cultures are covered through the teaching of different languages and cultures, and the enjoyment and appreciation of different ‘countries, cultures, communities and people’ through the whole school. We recognise there are many languages spoken at Rosehill including conventional languages such as Urdu, Portuguese and Albanian, but also eclectic communication through Makaton, signs and symbols, and communication tools such as PECs.
Linked with other subjects, and as a discrete subject, MFL & cultures provides a range of experiences and achievements, which contributes to the richness of the pupil’s lives according to individual needs and abilities. For our pupils an understanding of the world around them may be their immediate world –such as the room they are in, the area in the school and the journey they make from the transport they arrive on to their classroom. Moving beyond this, pupils may extend to the area they live in and even further afield.
We build on this by providing exciting, enjoyable and relevant links for our learners. We aim to help our pupils to:
- Respond to aspects of cultural awareness through sensory investigation
- Respond to songs, rhymes and greeting in a foreign language
- Be aware of similarities and differences in people, countries and cultures
- Make connections in their learning with other curriculum subjects
- Lay the foundations for lifelong language learning
- Links with Fundamental British Values (FBV) and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education (SMSC)
