Bonjour, et comment ca va?
We teach French from P1, focusing primarily on oral/aural skills, with more emphasis on written language from P5 onwards. Learning and teaching is active, based on games and songs, and uses technology as a vital tool. We cover topics such as greetings, colours, classroom language and numbers, weather, hobbies, food and clothes. We also learn about the landscape and culture of France. This session we have enjoyed a huge focus on 'La Francophonie', investigating the many French speaking countries around the world, in an interdisciplinary, global citizenship topic. This culminated in a French Bistro Open Evening, under the Eiffel Tower (!) as pupils shared their learning in French songs and Samba drumming with parents, and we all sampled dishes from around La Francophonie: Egypt, Polynesia, Gabon and Madagascar.
