Reception - Form 2: Au Bord de la Mer

In readiness for our last few lessons on the topic of the seaside, here is a video featuring a multi-lingual seaside song. Can you spot how many languages they sing in? We will have a go at singing the chorus ourselves!

French Breakfast June 2011

The weather could not have been better for our last French Breakfast of the year. Children, parents and teachers sat at tables outside the school in the sun enjoying croissants, pains au chocolat, hot chocolate, orange juice and coffee. Many thanks to Mrs Groom and her team for their hard work!

Prep 3 - Prep 6: The World's Gone French!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Onatti Productions this morning who performed The World's Gone French! for Prep 3 - Prep 6. The play was partly in French and partly in English and as well as being hugely entertaining, gave the children an opportunity to learn and revise lots of useful vocabulary. The acting was great and the children were engaged from beginning to end. Lizzie in 4W told me afterwards that she wanted to watch the whole play over again!
Thanks Onatti and see you next year!

Prep 6: Devine Qui C'est!

Click to Play!

Prep 6 will be playing Guess Who? (Devine Qui C'est?) in their French lessons this week. I found this version of the game online that we might use - shame the names aren't in French!

Château de la Baudonnière: merci!

I just wanted to thank Prep 5 for being such great company over the week. I've been looking forward to taking them since I had them as my form last year and I'm very excited that I will be their teacher again next year! Thank you to all the Prep 5 parents for letting them come, to the Château staff for the fantastic organisation and wonderful activities (can I have a bigger room next year though, please?!) and especially to Phil and Dee for keeping me company, helping me massively and making me laugh so much!

Prep 5: Les Trois Petits Cochons

After our winning performance of Les Trois Petits Cochons at the Château talent show last night, I couldn't help laughing when this was recommended by another teacher this morning! I must show it to Prep 5 in class next week.

Château de la Baudonnière: dimanche

Nous sommes arrivés! After a long day in the coach we are here at last. We were met by Alice, who showed us to our dormitories and helped us find a very tasty dinner of fromage, pain and jambon. New word learnt within ten minutes of arriving: perroquet. We are sharing our dining room with a parrot called Jam. Just time for a run around outside and for meeting the hundreds of tame rabbits, then pyjamas and bed! Bonne nuit!
