Et voila`!! … Your child will unlock a love of language!
At Sandridge, your child will have a regular French teacher who will enthuse about the subject and so create enthusiastic learners. Lessons will be kinaesthetic and fun with lots of listening and speaking opportunities that will give your child the confidence to ’have a go’.
Your child will take part in interactive games and activities on the iPads to build confidence skills and use recording equipment to have fun with pronunciation. They will also use props for engaging in fun role play to make the experiences more ‘real’.
Each pair in the class will be equipped with a French/English dictionary during the lesson to ensure your child can be independent when exploring the language. Your child will enjoy using French in their day to day routines, like taking the register, choosing lunches and greeting each other. They will learn French songs and sing English songs in French that will expand their vocabulary.
Your child’s teacher will ensure that they are given the support they need to become a confident speaker with the opportunity to take on the role of the teacher’s assistant to help those who find something a bit more challenging overcome their obstacles or doubts.
Your child will be encouraged to celebrate our multicultural society and the increasingly multicultural nature of the school by celebrating not just French but also other nationalities in assemblies and on international days held in the school.
Learning another language in not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about thing – Flora Lewis
