Lessons for primary school age children
We teach in classrooms (PPA cover) and after-school clubs (online or at school). We also give private lessons (online or at home). Exemple of one of our lessons on right side.
Our lessons include:
A program that has been specifically written for each age group.
Indoor and outdoor games, easy songs, arts and crafts, acting, and a little bit of writing for the older ones to reinforce the learning (but the focus is on speaking the language in a fun way).
We use different materials such as interactive whiteboards, board games, puppets, flashcards, outdoor game...
The children learn vocabulary and related to Everyday life (at the market, doctor, at the park...), Traditional tales, French celebrations, French games...
Online activities to support your child's learning.
We limit the group to 12 (on site) and 9 (online) so children can all join in should they wish.
& cooking workshops - A vos marques, prêt, cuisinez !
We run cooking workshops 3 Saturdays per year near Hove Park from 2pm to 4pm.
Cooking is very visual so children are happy to follow the instructions in French.
They will create French dishes from scratch and we will all sit together at the end to eat our meal together with a fruit cocktail.
