Excellent! Our foreign language assistant, Jessica, kindly wrote out a text in text speak which students in 9PU and 9RE French translated into French, having studied the text in detail the lesson prior. We then used the activity 'Sending Messages' on MYLO to reinforce this. They are now asking for a text speak test at the end of the unit. Oh language teaching JOY!!! A+!!

Today in French we used the Habit of Mind: Persistence, in order to tackle Direct Object Pronouns in French. 9PU excellently approached the task and completed an online quiz to experience success. Mlle Hardman est très fière!

Well it's been a busy Term 1! We embraced Open Evening by transforming our department into an airport, celebrating our academic achievements with the BA Flag Award. We celebrated the European Week of Languages with themed assemblies, inspiring quotes as corridor visuals and quizzes and the like. The department staff have new Easi-Speak microphones so they are very happy. Thinking Schools initiative continues to form the foundation of our teaching and learning. The students continue to inspire us with their achievements and they look forward to seeing who the current faces are on the 'Wokywood' Hall of Fame. Our year 9 students are also enjoying access to the foreign language assistants and we launch into Term 2 with as much fervour as the previous one. Till the next update! Miss Hardman

The 2013 Elbeuf Work Experience Trip was a resounding success with all participants representing the school excellently whilst abroad. Students delivered English language lessons to primary school students, spent time in the local secondary school (Lycée André Maurois) on Saturday morning, and settled into life with their French families. The last day consisted of a trip to Paris where Monet was viewed, la Seine was sailed and the Eiffel Tower was climbed. Not bad for a day trip! The weather held out too. Lucky given the snow and rain that had fallen the previous week. Well done to all participants for doing us proud. (The staff too had their work cut out as they spent the week driving around the French countryside visiting students. A sat nav came in very handy!) Miss Hardman, Miss Figueira and Jessica Paboudjian.

In addition to this, we will also receive a glass award and £100. Well done to all the students and staff involved.

Languages have made the news again as Joey Barton, speaking in an interview after making his debut for Marseille, spoke in a mix of accents: Liverpudlian and French! His reason:'In my defence, it is very difficult to do a press conference in Scouse for a room full of French journalists". What do you think?

Last year we wrote on this blog about our link with our friends from Prácticas Primary School in the town of Ourense, in the North West of Spain. This year 7 Red and 8 Blue have been our ambassadors in Spain by continuing this pen pal exchange with the Spanish students. 8 Blue have been pen pals with class 6ºB for two years and the two classes met again via videoconference on Friday 18th June. This is the link to the videoconference. Thank you very much to 8 Blue for their enthusiasm and I hope they stay friends with their Spanish pen pals for many years to come!
