Resources in French

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.


French Showcase events

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.

School lunch menus in French

Our new summer menus have been produced in English and French as we continue to embed French into the daily routines of the classroom. Powerpoints with photos of the menu choices and sound files are in Education Exchange, 1+2 Languages, Primary 2.

Concours de la Francophonie

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.
