This year our theme for French in the Junior School is “Numbers and beyond”. During Term 1, we will be focussing on basic Numbers, Colours, Greetings and the Alphabet. The Years 1 to 3 boys will also be using the Alphabet to learn about Paris and the Year 4-6 classes to learn about France.
We began the year with two French celebrations, La Galette des Rois and la Chandeleur. We found out about the special cake with the hidden “fève”, charm, for Jan 6 and a way of getting extra luck by tossing a pancake whilst holding a coin on la Chandeleur.
Our French teaching team this year is Reception to Year 3 Mme McLachlan, Years 4 to 6 Miss Procopio, Ms Hanna and Mr Becker. There are two French teaching areas. The Reception to Year 3 French classes are held in the French room, New Palm House, Junior Primary, and Years 4 to 6 French is upstairs in the Bickersteth building, next to the library.
We are all looking forward to a wonderful year of French.
