Morden Foreign Language (MFL) EWPS

At Ellen Wilkinson Primary School our choice of foreign language is Mandarin. We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to acquire understanding in a modern foreign language. They will be taught a measure of fluency in the language, communication and pronunciations. They will also be taught how to engage in short and long conversation with their peers and other partner schools.How we teach MFL

How we teach MFL

Every class in KS2 have an hour lesson of Mandarin every week. This lesson is taught by a Mandarin teacher. We follow a programme of study which is in line with the National Curriculum.

Children are given the opportunity to engage in practical learning using concrete resources. They are encouraged to express their language acquisition among themselves.

How we know your child is succeeding

Children’s success can be measured through:

  • Learning Outcome
  • Fluency in language
  • Stage 1 and 2 Mandarin Test











Quarter 3 Update

In this quarter our pupils have enjoyed learning Mandarin and the impact of the teaching programme reflects good attainment for majority of the pupils from year 2 to year 6. 

The yearly Mandarin Test will take place in the month of May and our year 3, 5 and 6 pupils will take a written test.

In addition, we have a new teacher that has joined the MFL team, Mrs Meng who works alongside Mrs Yu to deliver a practical, interesting and engaging lessons.
