TERM SUMMER 2019
Our aim is to ensure children understand and learn to love the culture of France and to gain good
listening and speaking skills. We use lively role play, games, bingos, songs and activities to make
French culture both enjoyable and memorable.
It is a pleasure to teach your children and I hope they enjoy the lessons as much as I do. If you have
specific questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New pupils have settled into the routine very well this term and are participating confidently.
