Modern Foreign Languages

At Broughton Jewish we teach Ivrit across the school as a Modern Foreign Language. 



Our Languages curriculum has been specifically tailored to meet the unique context of our school. It is designed to be broad and balanced, providing all pupils with the opportunity to master their learning and deepen their knowledge, making sense and giving purpose as to why we learn another language.

At Broughton Jewish we believe that the learning of modern Ivrit helps to promote a wider cultural awareness of the community that the children are part of. As the ability to travel to Israel becomes increasingly accessible, we recognise the importance for our children to be able to communicate in a different language effectively. Learning a language opens doors and provides more opportunities for our children to develop a greater understanding of the world and their place in it.

We aim to build high levels of competence in the subject specific skills of:

  • Speaking
  • Listening  
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Grammar



Language is taught through the framework of the 2014 National curriculum. The principles and content of its requirements have been carefully placed at the heart of the schools programme of study in Languages. An Ivrit speaking teacher, who keeps a year group overview of curriculum coverage and attainment, teaches Languages.



A high quality teaching of languages aims to develop a range of skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas, such as Literacy and Geography. Children will:

  • listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by responding
  • explore patterns and sounds of language through a variety of techniques
  • engage in conversations, speak in sentences and develop accurate pronunciation
  • broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words
  • write phrases to express their ideas clearly
