At Burrough Green C of E Primary, we provide a range of opportunities for the pupils to engage with the French language throughout their years at our school. We have a specialist French teacher who teaches pupils in Year 2 and above weekly. Many of our pupils then further their study of this language at their chosen secondary school.
Examples of French work throughout our school
Théâtre Sans Frontières worked with our KS2 pupils to perform Les Olympiques des Animaux. They had an amazing time!
Our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils wrote about the Tudors in French
January 6th every year is La Fête des Rois - The Kings' Festival. In France, Epiphany is celebrated by the sharing of a special pie called une galette. Whoever has the special charm in their slice of galette can be the king or queen for the day.
