Bonjour! At Barwic Parade the children learn French through activities involving listening to sounds, speaking with the correct pronunciation and intonation, reading, writing and cultural understanding.
Barwic Parade follows the North Yorkshire scheme which is enhanced by a variety of other interactive activities to make the learning of a foreign language fun. Our teaching staff encourage the children to ask and answer questions to clarify and enhance their learning in French. The children use context and clues to interpret meaning and to enjoy trying out their skills in a new language.
Our children have been involved in a whole school French day, a visit to a French Theatre event, and the visit of a French Chef.
Some of our Year 5 children visited the Chateau du Broutel, Rue, France at the end of March 2017. They spent three nights at the Chateau and experienced lots of exciting, interactive and fun French activities. These included visiting a goats farm, a sealife centre, a snail farm, a chocolate factory, as well as visiting the local market to practice their French!
Watch out for details of the French Trip in 2018 for our Year 5's.
