Musical chairs French - at St James Primary School, Elstead!



I’m thrilled to be offering a French club at St James on Fridays from 8.10 – 8.45 am. This is aimed primarily at Year 6 pupils to enable them to learn French in fun sessions, with the emphasis on speaking and games. (The club can also be offered to Year 5 if there are any spaces.) The content of the sessions includes learning numbers, talking about themselves, using colours, saying what hurts, buying fruit and vegetables in euros and expressing opinions – all vocabulary that Rodborough has suggested is useful for French in Year 7.


My background: I am an experienced languages teacher and have taught GCSE and A level French and Spanish for many years. I currently teach part-time to pupils in years 5 to 8, but in addition to that, I have been running my own language school for over six years which offers French and Spanish conversation groups to adults. Over the course of my career, I have developed many communicative games that give children the opportunity to speak a foreign language with a purpose, within a learning environment.


Sessions cost £7.50 and are payable half-termly in advance.


Please contact me if your child would like to join this club.

My son has been doing a before school French club at St James Primary and has come home raving about the sessions and what a great teacher Angela is - we rarely hear much about what happens at school so she has definitely made an impression. He has also been practicing at the dinner table - can't recommend Angela and her work too highly.



My two children have loved learning French and enjoyed being taught different things each week, it was all made really fun for them.
