Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) - German
Children at Lostock Gralam learn a language throughout Key Stage 2. In Years 3 to 6, the children learn German which provides them with a sound basis before moving onto secondary school. Within weekly German lessons, there is a strong emphasis on fostering an enjoyment of languages. Therefore, songs, rhymes, puppets and games form an integral part of each lesson. Pupils are encouraged to ‘share what they have noticed’, identifying similarities with their own language, as well as differences (such as accents and punctuation). They are encouraged to participate in role-plays to practise and share their learning, and to develop oral confidence.
This term, we will learn greetings and how to introduce ourselves and our family in German. We will also learn some numbers and songs.
