We teach French here at Barming Primary School to our Year 3 to Year 6 children.
The scheme used is based on Tout le Monde but has been developed by a native French teacher, who until recently worked at the school.
Our Language Leaders from September 2017 will be Mrs Garstang, Mrs Reed and Mr Paul. This year however, Mr Paul and Miss Rosser have led the way as our Language Leaders.
BASTILLE DAY 2017
We will be celebrating Bastille Day this Friday 14th July.
Bastille Day is a French national day of celebration. In France it is formally known as ‘La Fete Nationale’.
During Bastille Day all the children will get the opportunity to visit the ‘Café De Barming’ which is set up and run by our very own Year 6 children.
In the café the children will be able to buy a French pastry and a typical French drink. When buying a pastry and drink the children will be encouraged to practise their French skills by ordering in French and paying with Euros. The children will even get an opportunity to visit the bureau de change before-hand to experience changing money.
Whilst the children are not experiencing the ‘Café De Barming’ they will be completing a range of activities in their own classrooms, some of these will include; practising their French or painting in the style of different French artists, such as Georges Seurat (who created a pointillism painting of the Eiffel tower). Other activities might include learning about the Tour De France, finding out the background around Bastille Day and completing quizzes to test their knowledge and understanding. All of which will support their understanding of French whilst making the experience one to remember!
