On parle Français ici !

(We speak French here!)


The National Curriculum states that learning a foreign language gives children an opening to other cultures, fosters curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. At Betley CE Primary School we aim to develop children’s enthusiasm for foreign languages and cultures from an early age and to give then a firm foundation for studying languages throughout their education. Children from Foundation stage to year 6 learn French as part of our enrichment curriculum. In line with the national curriculum, we focus communication for practical purposes both in speech and, as the children progress through the school, in writing.


In all year-groups the emphasis is upon enjoyment, with games and singing in French regularly a feature of French lessons at Betley.
