FRENCH IN MIDDLE SCHOOL

Bonjour!

Middle School French has been great so far this year. We have very eager students who are learning at a fast pace whilst having lots of fun! Monsieur Hess and I are really looking forward to French Immersion Week at the end of this term when the boys will be partaking in a variety of activities including the 'Tour de Claremont' Cycling Race, mime workshops and enjoying lots of French cuisine. This programme will be a wonderful opportunity for the boys to develop their langauge skills as well as immerse themselves in French culture.

In Madame Tierney's Year 6 classes the boys imagine that they are in France. Madame Tierney is the President and the students take on the role of an Army General and a Captain. The boys enter the classroom with their 'Passports' and they are allocated to a French city (working group) and they score points for their city. I am grateful to these boys for their participation in this fun and worthwhile project.

Cordialement

Madame Tierney et Monsieur Hess
