French

Au nom de Mme Hilton, du personnel et des enfants, bienvenue à Redhill!

At Redhill School, we have chosen French as our MFL language study!  Our curriculum focuses on speaking and listening with reading and writing. This includes practising spoken language to improve pronunciation and fluency and studying the written form of the language.

We include French songs and rhymes into our whole school weekly song practice and children enjoy taking part in activities during our themed days such as European Modern Languages Day and Bastille Day.  Where possible, we link our French topics to the Creative Curriculum such as Living Things and their Habitats in Science (see our knowledge curriculum map below). 

Here is a video of Miss Sullivan and Miss Fox leading our pupils in a French numbers song during assembly. The video is about if you want to join in!

Bienvenue au Louvre!

Redhill is home to a very special exhibition . . To raise the profile of French, every class in school contributed to an art gallery based on the Louvre Museum in Paris. Each year group undertook a study of one particular artist such as Monet, Metzinger or Matisse and researched their history. They then observed and applied the same style in a piece of their own.  Older pupils also translated captions in French to accompany their art. 

Included in this art gallery is a replica of the Mona Lisa (a famous painting housed in the Louvre Museum). This has been created by one of our students and, I am sure you will agree, shows his exceptional talent! If you visit our school, please visit our art gallery and take a look at our work!
