We are so pleased to be working with Cogenhoe Primary School.
Petite Etoile currently teaches French lessons to years 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
Teamwork and peer support
A growth mindset with a detective like approach to unfamiliar language
How do we deliver French at Cogenhoe Primary?
A 1 hour lesson per week with each class.
Clear routines of meeting and greeting in French to help pupils feel safe and secure.
Lots of rewards to promote positive learning behaviour: prizes; certificates, star table awards for teamwork; French ambassador roles to encourage peer support and role modelling.
