Our classes are very active, enhancing the child’s language, numeracy, physical and creative development while increasing their knowledge and understanding of the world
Language programmes cater for different age groups in small classes.
The lessons take place weekly and the year is divided into three school terms.
Different classes take place every week, especially adapted to the language development of the age group.
With our team, each lesson is carefully planned in great detail. Our teachers are carefully selected and trained. All our tutors are fully insured and there are internal policies to ensure children’s welfare, available on request. All our tutors are DBS checked.
We teach adults and children together in small classes (Max. 8) Our objective is that you and your child learn French together making the lesson an enjoyable experience to share with your little one.
Our programme uses the famous La Jolie Ronde Methodology. We include singing, movement, puppets and pop up stories, with plenty of finger rhymes and craft.
Children continue to enjoy French throughout a two-year course. This course is a tremendous treasure trove of games and activities with lots of games to choose from. CILT commented that the course is ”Suitable for use with Key Stage 1 beginners. This resource presents a programme of structured, creative and enjoyable activities, built around story telling techniques and taking full account of varied learning styles, within the context of passing seasons.” (max. 10 pupils)
The children learn orally first, reading and writing are postponed until confident oral activities have been performed and are established. Children start learning with the Programme 'Salut Céline et Antoine'. At the end they will have learnt core vocabulary, expressing themselves in short sentences and responding to questions. They will have been introduced to some grammar with fun and be able to develop short conversations.
They will then move on to ‘Bonjour La France’ where their core vocabulary is extended. At the end they will be introduced to role-plays and learn how to recycle words and phrases to produce their own sketches. Their writing will be extended to sentence level and they will have been introduced to further grammar.
(max. 10 pupils)
