“One language sets you in a corridor for life.   Two languages open every door along the way.”

Frank Smith

Our Intent: 

The intention of the MFL curriculum at Sugar Hill is to inspire our pupils to engage in learning different languages from EYFS right through to Year 6. We want to develop their understanding of languages by: 

  • Taking part in oral activities to develop their skills in speaking a different language. 
  • Taking part in listening activities to develop their skills in listening to a different language. 
  • Taking part in reading activities to develop their skills in reading a different language. 
  • Taking part in writing activities to develop their skills in writing in a different language. 

The knowledge and skills required to excel in this subject are set out in the progression documents below.


Our MFL curriculum has been carefully planned and structured to reflect children’s development of language at different stages of their development. Our youngest children are encouraged to sing songs and practise simple greetings to each other in either French or Spanish. As they progress through school, our pupils are given the opportunity to expand their language skills ensuring that they practise the four key sills; listening, speaking, reading and writing in either French or Spanish.

As language learners, Sugar Hill pupils will be able to engage in listening, speaking, reading and writing tasks in either French or Spanish throughout their time at school. They will be able to hold conversations about familiar topics to them and be able to appreciate and understand how learning languages can enhance their understanding of the world. They will also be able to build firm foundations in either French or Spanish ready to advance their skills when they leave us and begin their languages journey at secondary school.
