Lote – French
The French program at Newham engages children to explore language and develop intercultural understandings. In classes, we develop language skills for everyday activities, to talk about ourselves and to find out about others.
Each week, we enjoy French songs, stories, videos and games, and we draw, write, move and talk in response.
Senior students participate in the Alliance Française Berthe Mouchette French Poetry Competition, where they learn to recite a classic French poem.
