Support for Whitegate End French Day

Students venture out to share language learning

A group of high fliers in French at The Radclyffe School shared their studies, helping pupils at a local primary school to pick up the language and learn more about France.

The students are Peer Coaches and worked with teachers to support the activities. The Year 10 youngsters visited Whitegate End Primary School to help out with a special French afternoon.

During the day the primary children learnt songs, made French flags, found out about famous French people and taste French food. At the end of the day they could identify many famous Parisien landmarks and know all about the Tour de France. All the year groups from Years 1 to 6 got involved.

Teacher of MFL Alison Watkinson said, “Our students really enjoyed working with the pupils. The visit strengthened their skills at the same time as they helped the primary pupils. It was a great help to introduce them to what’s involved with language teaching.”

“We were very pleased to support Whitegate End in their language learning. It was an entertaining and exciting way to learn a lot about France.”
