Global Connections - with schools around the world

French School Writing Exchange

As well as our work in Comenius Primary 5-7 pupils are involved in writing to pupils in a Paris primary school.

 

We have worked with this school before using email, but this year we have been hand writing letters and cards in our exchange.

Last Skype Meeting of the Session

Today we had a last video conference meeting of the school year, on Skype with our French friends in VANDEINS, in eastern France, north of Lyons.

This was the second part of an activity that we began last week.  Before the activity each class prepared a monster which had to have a certain amount of eyes, noses, mouths, ears, hair with colour and each monster would like cake or ice cream or both!  We then sent them to each other's school, and each pupil would describe the monster of a pupil in the other school.  The activities have been prepared by the French teacher Elisabeth Farinha.

The French pupils described the monsters in French, while the Scottish pupils listened, and the Scottish pupils described the monsters in English, while the French pupils listened.

The activity started slowly until confidence was built up, and pupils of both schools 'tune in' to the accents of the other.  It really got going well in this second session, with some added language where pupils introduced themselves and asked how it was going!

We are going to continue this good work next session and we look forward to meeting again.  We have not managed to meet as regularly as was hoped this session, but next time we hope we can build in regular meetings.

It is great being able to speak live with native speakers right there in France and us here in Scotland, and our pupils are really enjoying the activities and having fun while they improve their language speaking skills.

Read on to see and listen into a few of our exchanges.

Skype with French School

Primary 6/7 had a second Skype session with our friends in VANDEINS, in eastern France, north of Lyons.

 

Unfortunately there were technical problems, which caused us to lose about 20 minutes at the start.

 

We did manage to play a game of bingo, where each of the numbers was spoken in the second language of each school.

 

We also had a question and answer session, where a pair of pupils, one from each country, asked eack other questions about themselves and where they live.

 

We hope to have another session quite soon to makle up for the lost time of this session.  The whole experience is extremely worthwhile and can only benefit the learning of both schools. Laughing
