Churston Ferrers Grammar school welcomed Galmpton primary school on Tuesday 8th October for a French workshop. It was all about les animaux marins et les chiffres, la presentation and c’était of course très amusant et instructif!
Years 4 and 5 enjoyed half a day at Churston practising new sounds, learning new words such as requin and tortue, étoile de mer et le dauphin, engaging in rhyming activities.
It was an opportunity to further develop a foreign language studied at primary school. Galmpton is fortunate to have the support of madame Connell who teaches French and coordinates events such as this one.
The children enjoyed discovering a different culture, they thrived in team work activities in a secondary environment. From hot potato games to running dictations, the children developed a range of skills wrapped up in bonbons and biscuit au chocolat evidemment!
Churston Ferrers Grammar School is proud to nurture strong links with neighbouring primary schools and to offer language expertise and support in the delivery of modern foreign languages.
Au revoir Galmpton and bonjour soon to Brixham CoE who will join us here on 29th October…. We will hola the session this time for some Spanish extravaganza!
