Bienvenue! Welcome!

As a parent of two children attending Bromham Primary , I am so pleased to
be working with this school.  Petite Etoile currently teaches French lessons to
years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and an after school French club for year 2.  Senora Bentley 
also runs a Spanish club on a Thursday lunchtime for year 5 and 6.


What will your child gain by learning French with Petite Etoile?

  • Enthusiasm for language learning

  • Open mindedness and a receptive attitude to other cultures

  • Awareness of the French culture and similarities and differences to our culture

  • Knowledge of French grammar relating to nouns, verbs and adjectives which in turn enhances and reinforces the pupils’ general literacy awareness

  • Confidence

  • Teamwork and peer support

  • A growth mindset with a detective like approach to unfamiliar language

How do we deliver French at Bromham Primary?

  • One 45 min - 1 hour lesson per week with years 5 and 6.

  • One 30 min lesson per week with years 3 and 4.

  • Clear routines of meeting and greeting in French to help pupils feel safe and secure.

  • Lots of rewards to promote positive learning behaviour: stamps and stickers for effort each lesson; star table awards for teamwork; French ambassador roles to encourage peer support and role modelling.

LA FETE DES ROIS: Three Kings Day:
A celebration for Epiphany on the 6th January

We have started the year by learning about a traditional celebration on the 6th January which celebrates the arrival of the three Kings to Bethlehem.  On this, the twelfth night, the family gets together for their last Christmas feast.  The family eats a special cake called 'LA GALETTE DES ROIS'.  It is a cake made of puff pastry.  Inside is a lucky charm: 'UNE FEVE.'  The youngest in the family sits underneath the table during the cutting of the cake and calls out names of family members around the table to have a slice of 'la galette.'  Whoever gets the piece of 'LA GALETTE' with 'LA FEVE' inside, wears a crown and becomes King or Queen for the day!
