Great Harwood St John's CE MFL Intent


At St John's, we teach French as our modern foreign language. It is our intent that learners of all abilities access interactive and engaging French lessons through a structured program called Rigolo, which equips them with age appropriate vocabulary and phrases. Delivered in bitesize way, Rigolo allows regular revisit and retrieval opportunities, helping the children with their successful acquisition of the language. In addition, acquiring a new language provides an opening to learning about other cultures and deepening their understanding of the world. We strive to equip our children with the foundations of a new language which can be built on in their future educational journey or should they choose to study and work in other countries.
