Modern Foreign Languages
At Blessed Mother Teresa's Catholic Primary School we want every child to be enthusiastic learners of French and to be eager to achieve their very best in order to fulfil their God-given talents. We firmly believe that the recipe for success is high quality first-wave teaching in French, which is central to the life of our happy caring school.

What do BMT pupils say about their MFL learning?
Year 3 - 'I like the fun games we play when we learn French. We have been learning about body parts and our family. I enjoy it when Mrs Watson shows us how to write and say new words in French.'
Year 4 - 'We have been learning numbers in French and have been practicing how to use them in lots of ways. I enjoyed learning about Hawaii and how people greet each other in Hawaiian.'
Year 5 - 'I love it in French when we practice speaking out loud and pronouncing different words. My favourite lesson was when we pretended to work in a restaurant and we spoke everything in French! I like listening to my teacher because she helps me to say things correctly.'
Year 6 - I have enjoyed my French learning this year because we practice saying things out loud as well as written down. I loved it when we pretended to be shopkeepers and ordered a variety of sweets. It is nice to learn a different language because if we visit France we can try and speak French.'
