Harestock European Languages Day

On Tuesday 26th September we celebrated European Languages Day in school.

The day began with a French breakfast where Mrs Sankey and Mrs Hull offered a selection of French pastries and ‘Jus de Pomme ‘ or ‘Jus d’Orange’ to children and their parents. A big ‘Thank You’ to all those children and parents who supported this event!

Throughout the morning children from Year 1 through to Year 6 experienced French, German, Italian and Spanish with language students from Peter Symonds College.  The students prepared a variety of activities for the children where they taught songs, days of the week, greetings, colours and animal vocabulary.

It was a very busy morning and a wonderful opportunity for the children (and the teachers!) to experience different European languages.

Year 3 /4 French Spring Term 2017

This term’s French unit is all about food — both eating it and preparing it. The children have learnt the names of some foods, including fruit and veg, cutlery and cooking ingredients.  They have learnt how to say which foods they like and dislike, and to say what they are eating. The children also enjoyed singing a very silly ‘food rap’ in French!

The unit ends with children writing and performing their own mini role plays in a shop where they are buying ingredients for ‘le pain perdu’( French toast). This is a traditional French recipe which they might like to try this at home in the Easter Holidays!
