Former pupil shares her experiences of learning French

Ruth, one of our former pupils, kindly spoke to the children at John Muir Campus about her experiences of using French in both Morocco and Dunbar’s twinning town in France.

She carried out a variety of jobs whilst in France including working in a dog parlour, café and senior citizen’s residential community to improve her language skills!  We wish her well as she continues her language studies.

Ruth is pictured with the winner of this week’s French award for greeting one of the teachers in the corridor, asking how she was, replying to the question and saying goodbye all in French.

1+2 Languages Parent and Carers Drop In Session

Many thanks to parents who attended the 1+2 Languages Drop In Session this morning.  The focus was fruit names.

Our next drop in session will be on Friday 2  February 2018 in the John Muir Campus Library 9-9.30 am and is open to all P1-7 parents and carers.  The theme will be weather vocabulary.  Support and resources are also available for any aspect of French and German language learning during the session.

All of the teaching staff are using the fantastic East Lothian Languages Platform which is really user friendly.

Yesterday some P1 children wrote about La Fete de Rois (Three King’s festival).  Can you spot the child under the table shouting the name of the person they want to get the first piece of the galette (crown cake) on the table and the king and queen for the day?
