At the Flourish Federation, we use Kapow Primary’s French scheme of work, which aims to instil a love of language learning and an awareness of other cultures; providing the opportunities for pupils to develop the confidence to communicate in French for practical purposes, using both written and spoken French.


Through this scheme of work, we aim to give pupils a foundation for language learning that encourages and enables them to apply their skills to learning further languages, developing a strong understanding of the English language, facilitating future study and opening opportunities and fuelling the aspiration to study and work in other countries in the future.


Kapow Primary’s French scheme of work supports pupils to meet the national curriculum end of Key stage 2 attainment targets.


Due to copywrite law, we do not hold publicly-accessible versions of our MFL progression on the website, therefore this only contains coverage and vocabulary.

Kapow Statement for Progression of Vocabulary



Unlike other curriculum subjects, the word ‘vocabulary’ in language learning refers to the building

blocks of the subject itself rather than a simple list of relevant vocabulary. In other words, whereas vocabulary in other subjects helps develop a framework glossary of understanding, in French the vocabulary grows into more of a dictionary of knowledge chunks. But language learning does not necessarily progress simply because our vocabulary widens.


In our lessons, vocabulary is taught discretely, but always with the aim of moving from simple recall of a word to a deeper understanding of how it is used in the context of sentence structure and grammar. Individual items of vocabulary need to be understood, learned, recalled, re-encountered and recycled in different topics and in different sentence forms as our learners progress in their understanding of language and grammar.
