For our MFL, our school follows Rigolo: it is a ground-breaking Key Stage 2 French course, which provides a wealth of exciting activities for pupils, and as much or as little support for teachers as they need. It fully meets the requirements of the Key Stage 2 Framework for Languages. The course is aimed at pupils in Years 3–6, with Rigolo 1 covering Years 3 and 4, and Rigolo 2 Years 5 and 6. The course progression provides worksheets, games and follow-up activities for reinforcement and extension work. The fact that it can be used for all stages of ability adds to its value. Assessment is built into the programme and allows children to know what the Learning Intentions are (unit objectives) and thus know when and precisely what they have achieved. They can then go on to set their own goals, which is an aim of the Assessment is for Learning Programme.
