Bienvenue! Welcome!

We are so pleased to be working with Kymbrook and Thurleigh Primary
Schools.  Petite Etoile currently teaches French lessons to years 3, 4, 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 Thurleigh Primary?

  • One 45 min - 1 hour lesson per week with year 5 & 6 and year 3 & 4 class.

  • 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.

Quoi de neuf? What's new?

Autumn Term 2020:

  • Year 3 and 4 have been learning to introduce themselves, say numbers 1-20 and give their age.  They are learning to write the date and will learn the French alphabet.

  • Year 5 and 6 have been learning how to give their opinions on school subjects and are building more complex sentences.  They are also practising numbers 1-60 and are learning to tell the time in French.

  • Like cooking?  A French recipe booklet with simple traditional recipes is available here thanks to the brilliant Madame Birtwistle for you to try at home.

Class workbooks:

Each class spends 10-15 minutes per week recapping and extending their knowledge of French vocabulary by working through the workbooks below.
