To make maximum use of the latest courses and teaching methods in order to engage and motivate our students
To attract students to continue learning MFL in the Sixth Form.
‘I love being able to communicate in a foreign language’
‘My teacher makes sure that all the lessons are fun and engaging’
‘I am making a lot of progress and know what I need to do to achieve’
‘Languages are essential in the 21st century’
As part of our on-going work to support the teaching of primary languages, the MFL team regularly visits local primary schools within Plympton to work with class teachers and to teach students Spanish. This has been a fantastic way to get to know students before they come to Plympton Academy. We have also set up a local Spanish club where primary students have been learning how to master the basics. This has also proved very popular with parents!
