Modern Foreign Languages - Key Stage 2

Learning a foreign language can help to widen a child’s horizons and foster an interest in other places and cultures. Our children will have the opportunity to learn a range of Modern Foreign Languages during Key Stage 2 including French, Italian, Chinese, Spanish and Japanese laying the foundations for further MFL learning in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
