Pupils in Y6 have been preparing for the move onto high school by practising a range of the French they have learnt throughout KS1 and 2. With the support of our French teacher, Madame Birtwistle, pupils paired-up and recorded a conversation using the iPad app Yakitkids. The pitch of the voices have been adjusted by the pupils themselves!
This week, French exchange students from Le Mans have visited St. Philip’s and learnt about life in an English primary school. They have been staying with pupils from St. Monica’s as part of an exchange program. The students have joined in lessons and assisted our children with their French skills during a hugely enjoyable week for all concerned. The following video is an interview held between Year 6 pupils and Pierre Fleurance.
Pupils at St. Philip’s RC love French! Each week, pupils take part in lively, informative French lessons. Recently, all pupils took part in a French and Spanish day, in which they dressed-up, sampled food, watched French and Spanish TV and Films, and even constructed Eiffel Towers. The above video features Year 6 pupils demonstrating their fine conversational skills. Enjoy!
