Bienvenue! Welcome!

We are so pleased to be working with Great Ouse Primary Academy. 
Petite Etoile currently teaches French lessons to years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and we also
run an after school French club.  

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 Great Ouse Primary Academy?

  • One 1 hour lesson per week with each year group in year 3,4, and 5.

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

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

  • For French club pupils, a short video will be posted onto this website each week so that pupils can reinforce their knowledge of French at home, also enabling parents to help too!
