Le Français

  

 

Children are taught French for one hour every two weeks.  Year 3 and 4 develop their French skills by speaking and listening, while years 5 and 6 continue to speak and listen and begin to develop reading and writing skills.  We use lots of resources to help our learning in French.  Many of the lessons include learning in the four skills of language - speaking, listening, reading and writing.  A focus on French phonics is an important part of every lesson.   The children are supported by means of learning mats, classroom displays, dictionaries, and the use of technology.  We play games, listen to video and radio, learn songs and we can often be heard chanting with different emotions!  We are very proud of how able the children are in managing their own learning in Our Lady of Grace Juniors.   We are becoming very skilled at taking notes to use in our learning and in using memory techniques to make those notes more useful.  Children are in charge of their own learning in our language classes!

 

There are many sources of support for French available via the internet.  Please see the links below.

 

Memrise:  an app available for android, mac and computer.  Excellent and free!

 

Duolingo:  a free App for learning languages.  Excellent, Free!

 

Further support for learning is available through a vast library of free software on the London Grid for Learning. 

All children have access to the London Grid for Learning by logging into the site and entering their school login details at the login screen.  Simply type my.uso.im into your search bar, press enter and enter the login details at the appropriate screen.   Login details are normally pasted into homework diaries in year 3.  All other year groups should be very familiar with their own details.
