Since the beginning of term Miss Claude and Miss Marina, who teach French and run Le French Programme at Parsons Green Prep, have been in touch with a school in Normandy called Ecole Notre Dame la Trinité-Sur-Mer. One of our PGP children from Year 1 spent some time in the school over the summer holidays and suggested that our two schools start a letter exchange.
The children have sent several letters already, which has proved to be a wonderful exercise for both schools. Year 5 are taking part with Miss Claude, as well as a couple of Miss Marina’s Le French Programme pupils. It is a great activity for the children as they are putting their French to use in real-life situations, using all of the vocabulary learnt with Miss Claude.
The French school has published a few articles on the exchange with plenty of pictures on their website and they have also appeared in their local newspaper.
