The Junior School French department has been revamped this year, with access to an additional classroom and four wonderful teachers to share their knowledge on French culture.
Introducing you to our French teachers:
- Mademoiselle Rose Harvey
- Miss Julia Procopio
- Madame Arasmia Hanna
- Madame Marcia McLachlan
What will French look like for each year level?
- Reception students will take French in the Junior Primary building once a week.
- Students in Years 1 to 4 will take French in the Junior Primary building twice a week.
- Students in Years 5 to 6 will take French in the Shinkfield Building Language room twice a week.
The Junior School Language and Cultural theme for 2021 is My Environment and Famous French.
Over the past two weeks, students have learnt about and celebrated two French cultural events; La Galette des Rois (Epiphany cake) and La Chandeleur (Candlemas). Our next cultural discussions will be around Mardi Gras, Poisson d’avril (April Fool’s Day) and Pâques (Easter).
French Language lessons in Term 1 will centre around family, greetings, numbers, and colours.
Please encourage and assist your son to find items for French show and tell and help us inspire them to be a hunter and gatherer of all things French!
