    Hello, please can you direct me to the vocabulary on job and future plans that Miss Ritchie refers to in her blog. As a parent I am trying to support my son Max to learn vocabulary that he is learning in class. thanks, Lesley

    Good morning Mrs Aitkenhead,
    If you download the Metro Rouge Textbook word document (which is hyperlinked at the top of this page), you will find the vocabulary on jobs and work experience listed under Module 4. Max also has a comprehensive booklet with support on how to apply for a job in French, which I gave him to take home before the October half-term break. I’m sure that if you access these resources you will find them most helpful.
    Kind regards,
    Miss Ritchie
