From 5th-28th August the French Institute are running a mix of children’s shows, circus and theatre “adding a little more Frenchiness to our Festival”! For more details http://vivelefringe.org/
Remember to check CPDShare for details of next session’s French courses and training opportunities.
We now have a new Parent Zone page to share our learning in P1/2 French with parents and carers.
Here is a fantastic film from Stenton Primary showcasing all the work we have done with the assistants this session.
Assistants have been filming resources for staff training – songs, warm-up activities for PE etc. DVDs will be sent out to schools in August and the videos will also be on our 1+2 Google Drive.
As we are nearing the end of the session lots of schools are preparing events to share their learning in French with their parents and carers. Here are the P1/2s at Innerwick practising their “Bonjour” song. Please remember to share any videos or photos of your events.
To celebrate the international day of “la francophonie” (20th March) and to encourage young language learners and their teachers, a new national competition was launched this year by the Institut français d’Ecosse and SCILT. Entrants were asked to submit a short film and we are delighted to hear that Cockenzie Primary School has won the the P1-4 category with this entry.
This 12 lesson on-line course has been created for primary teachers who wish to learn French. It is designed for non-specialist teachers who would like help with grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
ELC will fund up to 10 teachers to enrol in this course. For more details and to book a place contact B. Murray by 10th February.
