Bonjour et bienvenue!
Á Bridge Hall nous adorons le français et on l'apprend de ‘Year 3’ jusqu'en ‘Year 6’. Nous avons hâte de partager notre compréhension avec vous.
(Hello and welcome! At Bridge Hall we love French and learn it from Year 3 up to Year 6. We are keen to share our understanding with you.)
At Bridge Hall we aim to prepare our children for their future in an ever-changing world. Even if we never leave our home country, we are now connected online to countries, languages and people all around the world in our pockets and homes every day. So learning to understand and communicate in a second language, and understanding more about other cultures, are essential skills for this new world of instant communication, and we want to give our children the opportunity to immerse themselves in it fully, and have fun with it!
Learning a new language has many benefits for all learners across the curriculum, including improving memory and problem-solving skills, and even understanding our own language better!
I am Ms Trowse and I am subject lead for Modern Foreign Languages (MFL), and as PPA teacher across the school I teach French each week to all years from Year 3 to Year 6.
This year children in Year 3 to Year 6 have all begun learning French, so our MFL long term plan reflects this, and will adjust in their second year of learning French and beyond. They are all enthusiastic about learning a new language and finding out more about different cultures, and I love sharing my knowledge with them and exploring languages around the school, and through cross-curricular activities. On y va!
If you have any questions about our French lessons in school, or would like to find out more about learning languages at home, including loans of simple French books, or online resources you can use to learn together, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me at school.
We also love to celebrate all the different languages and culture within our community, so if you would like to share your knowledge with us at school in any way, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
