Junior 6 Meet Their French Pen Pals Through Teams
There were big smiles and plenty of ‘Bonjours’ all round, when Junior 6 had the opportunity to meet their French pen pals face to face this morning.
Crackley Hall’s specialist language teacher, Madame Tatton, used her existing links with Ecole La Rédemption in Lyon, her home town, to set up pen pals for the pupils in her Junior 6 classes. The children have been writing letters and really enjoying getting to know a little bit about each other, but what with the pandemic and the approach of Christmas the post has been more than a little slow!
So together with the teacher from Ecole La Rédemption, Madame Creux, Madame Tatton organised a face to face meet up for the pen pal friends via Microsoft Teams.
The children were delighted to have the chance to see and speak to their new friends and took turns asking and answering simple questions. It was a great opportunity to listen to and speak French to a native speaker. They asked about each other’s favourite sports, lessons, hobbies and colours putting into practise vocabulary from the topics they have been learning in school.
It was a super session and a lovely language learning treat for the last day of term.
