      ST THOMAS’ ERASMUS+  PROJECT

At St Thomas’ we recently completed our very successful 2 year Erasmus+ Project. Over this time 14 staff benefited from attending training courses in Carcassonne and spent time building our link with the Hélène Boucher School in Toulouse.  We will be continuing to use the many resources produced by staff on the course and will be deepening the link with the school in Toulouse.  

Please do look at the information below to remind you of the staff involved in the project.

Our Erasmus+ project was a fantastic opportunity for staff to research the history of the beautiful town of Carcassonne and to gain a real insight into French culture.  While in France teachers worked hard on improving their French and also spent one whole day in our link school in Toulouse where they taught English to some classes and saw what it’s like in a French school! Our pupils  prepared lots of material which was taken to France, and we have loved the materials sent back by the French pupils!

EUROPEAN DAY OF LANGUAGES SEPTEMBER 2019   

In a special assembly on Thursday 26th September we thought about other languages spoken in the world and were amazed at the number of children who speak other languages themselves or know people who do!  We also celebrated the many activities which were undertaken by our pupils on Carcassonne Day in June 2019.

Here are some links for learning about other languages:   

Hello to all the children of the world!

There are 25 languages sung in this version of a familiar song!

20 versions of this famous scene from ‘Star Wars’

Lots of games on this webpage:

Bow wow , wouf wouf or bau bau? You decide!

EDL-animal-cards-all – more animal sounds!

Can you recognise which languages are being spoken?

FOREIGN LANGUAGES AT ST THOMAS’  

At St Thomas’ we aim to foster a love of learning languages and an appreciation of and respect for other cultures. Pupils are taught French for approximately one hour a week from Y1-Y6 and younger children also learn some French during the school year. In addition we aim to broaden pupils’ knowledge and interest in other languages by occasionally learning a few phrases in different languages.

We follow the DFE KS2 National Curriculum Programme of Study and our curriculum is also guided by the KS2 Framework for Languages. Games and songs play an important role in language learning here at St Thomas’ and we invite you to follow the links included on this website for your own amusement and to deepen your knowledge of French.

Madame Taylor is our specialist MFL teacher and subject lead at St Thomas’. In addition all class teachers are involved in delivering and supporting the teaching of French at our school and Mrs Jorgensson teaches French to Y1.  

Please follow the drop-down box links from the home page for information pertinent to each year group.
