Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)


French is taught to all years at Maiden Beech. We try to encourage a curiosity about languages in general which will make learning French fun and interesting. Lessons will include a wide variety of activities including role plays, songs, ICT, poems, games and dances as well as more formal grammar learning in Years 7 and 8. Pupils also have the opportunity to participate in extra activities such as European Day of Languages and a Valentine's Day poetry competition.
