Great Crosby Catholic Primary School
On 27th February, Onatti Productions will perform to KS2 children in French. Mme Edwards wants all the juniors to visit the website www.french-games.net and play these topics Colours, Family, Food (and drink) Go-Which Way, Numbers, World (Countries). Also, if you haven't already done so, please send £2 in an envelope with your child's name & class to cover the cost. Thank you.
Madame Edwards is our Primary French Specialist. Great Crosby is delighted that she has been chosen to speak at two National Language Conferences this year about our French Partnership work since 2014.
This is Great Crosby's fifth year of having French lessons across KS2. Each class from Year 3 to Year 6 has at least one 30 minute lesson each week with Madame Edwards.
We are very proud of the links that have been established by Madame Edwards with Sacred Heart, Lycée Bellevue Saintes, France, Louis Pasteur École Primaire Saintes, France, Greenbank Specialist Language School Birkdale and Liverpool University. Our children have benefited greatly from these positive connections to other local and even French places of language learning.
Bravo Madame Edwards et bravo tout le monde ! Keep up the great work in French everybody!
On Wednesday afternoon, April 25th, we had an exciting visit by Stephen Turkington from 'The European Commission'. He talked to some of the classes about his work and the importance of language learning.
Have a look at the section for children on the European Commission's website to find out more.
During French classes this week, the children have been learning about the French Giants, how to greet them and wave farewell to them in French.
Please try to visit the French Giants while they are here to mark 10 years since Liverpool was European Capital of Culture hence why it is called Liverpool’s Dream.
Check out the 'What's On - Routes' section at www.giantspectacular.com for more information and to follow the journey of The French Giants whilst they are here in Liverpool for their third and final visit!
