Curriculum Content Overview
The MFL Department at Attleborough Academy is a committed and passionate department whose intent is based upon the belief that learning a language opens a world of new possibilities and opportunities to our students. Through languages we foster students’ curiosity and deepen their understanding, not only of their own identity and culture, but also of other countries. We encourage students to become curious and interested in the world and to respect other cultures and people, as well as building their communication and literacy skills. There are many clear personal, cultural, social and career benefits in being able to communicate in another language. Our curriculum is designed to develop transferable language skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking as well as grammatical knowledge of French and German. It is an ambitious curriculum that builds on prior knowledge. Lessons are interactive, creative and challenging and it is our intent to develop resilient and confident students who are inquisitive linguists with high aspirations.
