Every term, the Creative Crew members choose a new "Phrase of the Fortnight" which they share with each class from
Year 1 to Year 6.
This fortnight's phrase is:
Je voudrais... which means: I would like...
Each week in Celebration Assembly, Madame Cornish announces the French Star of the Week. This accolade is given to pupils who demonstrate exceptional effort in lessons and those who are using the Phrase of the Fortnight appropriately around the school.

The winners of our landmark home learning can be seen below, along with other entries currently on display in our gallery.

The 2013 National Curriculum for Modern Foreign Languages aims to ensure that all children:
Trotts Hill teaches a high quality languages education which fosters children’s curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. It also helps children develop skills that will open further opportunities later in life. The teaching of French in KS1 and KS2 provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further foreign language teaching at KS3.
At Trotts Hill, children have the opportunity to develop their French language skills as well as learn about French culture and traditions.
Here are some ideas to keep up with your French and build your vocabulary:
Watch these videos from High Five French: https://radiolingua.com/learnathome/#primaryfrench
Learn the Rainbow Song and revise your colours in French. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZWN2Uragvc
For an alternative song about colours, listen to this one by Alain le Lait - it's rather unusual! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4kNeFGBAcw
Write une carte postale - write a postcard in French. You could say what your name is, how old you are, something you like and say goodbye. Maybe you could send it to a friend.
Visit the Musée d'Orsay in Paris from the comfort of your home. Take a virtual tour. https://artsandculture.google.com/partner/musee-dorsay-paris?hl=en You could try doing your own drawing or painting inspired by one of the pieces in the gallery.
