Barley Croft Primary School

Modern Foreign Languages


Through our French curriculum at Barley Croft Primary School, we aim to promote pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world beyond their locality. We believe that the learning of and immersion in other languages and cultures, is extremely important in order for our children to broaden their understanding of the world and its rich diversity. Our curriculum enables pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in French and to respond, both orally and in writing. We provide our children with engaging opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read and appreciate French literature. We strive to embed the skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts and we aim to prepare them for further language learning.
