Oh là là !!! Primary Sevens About to Teach the Modern Languages Team a Thing or Two ?

Monday 10th June 2019

The  Primary  Seven  pupils  who  will  be  visiting  ‘the  Big  School’  on  Wednesday,  Thursday  and  Friday  this  week  have  already  made  a  very  good  impression  on  their  future  Modern  Languages  teachers !

Since  April,  P7  classes  at  Bonnyrigg,  Hawthornden,  Lasswade,  Rosewell,  Paradykes  and  Burnbrae  Primary  Schools  have  been  busy  preparing  short  films  and  Powerpoint  presentations  about  the  ‘Francophonie’  –  the  association  of  countries  that  speak  French  (It’s  not  all  about  France, after  all).

The  films  and  presentations  will  be  shown  in  Modern Languages  classes  to  all  visiting  P7  pupils  (and  there  will  be  questions  for  them  to  answer  about  each  country).

Countries  covered  include :  Rwanda,  Morocco,  Algeria,  Canada  (Quebec), Haiti,  Belgium, Switzerland, Cameroon,  Reunion  … and  France.

French  really  is  a global  language !!

Topics  covered  include  history,  sport,  politics, music,  clothing  and  art.

An  incredible amount  of  work  has  gone  into  the  project,  which  ran  for  the  first  time  last  year.

All  our  visitors  will  be  finding  out  loads  of  new  facts  and  figures,  which should  whet  their  appetite  for  learning  more  French  from  August  onwards.  And,  who knows,   the  Modern  Languages  teachers  might  learn  something  new, too !
