Welcome to the French Department.

Pupils get 2 periods of French in S1 and S2 and 1 period in S3. French is also offered as an option in senior phase. The four aspects of speaking, listening, reading and writing are covered with the emphasis on speaking and listening. By learning a language pupils are able to make connections with different people and their culture and play a fuller part as global citizens.

A variety of topics are covered and we use a lot of songs and match up games to reinforce vocabulary. Lotto (French Bingo) is the firm favourite.

Topics covered:

S1           Greetings, numbers, colours, pets, family, descriptions and holidays

S2           House, rooms, furniture, places in town, directions, school

S3           Food and Drink, ordering at a café, sports and hobbies, opinions and clothes

Specific vocabulary for Halloween, Christmas and Easter is also covered.
