Budding Linguists!

In Years 3 and 4 the children have been practising their linguistic skills during mini role play activities. The children confidently met and greeted each other and introduced themselves before finishing with a goodbye!

Bonjour!/Salut! (Hello!/Hi!)
Comment tu t’appelles? (What is your name?)
Je m’appelle … (My name is …)
Et toi? (And you?)
Au revoir!/ A bientot! (Goodbye!/See you soon!)

Salutations! (Introductions)

We wanted to demonstrate our knowledge and understanding of another language by writing a short introduction and description of ourselves in French. Our descriptions tell our name and age, whether we have brothers and/or sisters, what pets we have and what we like to do as well as eat!

Sirius Language Leaders Visit

Children in Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a fantastic morning learning a variation of languages with our Sirius Language Leaders. The Year 10 students showcased their talents in French, German and Spanish all of which was enjoyed by the children and staff alike!

French food tasting

The children in year 4 enjoyed having a taste of France recently. French bread, croissants, brie and ‘red wine’ (blackcurrant juice). They had to use their language skills to ask for each item. For example, je voudrais du pain et du fromage s’il vous plait. I would like some bread and some cheese please. As you will see from the photograph, Mariah wasn’t too keen on the strong tasting Brie!
