CLUB CLAYGATE RECEPTION
TEACHER CAROLINE MEARES
TERM SPRING 2019
Our aim is to ensure the 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 it as much as we do. If you have specific
questions, please see me after the club or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
