Some dates for training in the La Jolie Ronde SoW for French have been arranged.
Helen Foley will begin with training in the Y3 SOW because the SoW is progressive, and so all pupils starting to learn French
need to start with Y3 in order to build up their knowledge and skills in the language. Helen states that it is not suitable
for older pupils to begin with say the Y5 SoW, as this assumes that they already have already been learning French for 2 years.
Most of the activities can be adapted for use with older pupils, and it really does work using the Y3 SoW with any age of
beginners. Helen has said that all of the above assumes that the teachers attending training will be starting (or have only
recently started) teaching French this year. If any staff have already been teaching French for some time then this training
would not be suitable for them.
Dates for the training are as follows:
Part 1 (PM sessions)
Tuesday 18th November
2014, Monday 24th November 2014 and Wednesday 3rd December 2014
part 2 of the training (PM Sessions)
Wednesday 25th February 2015 . Monday
9th March 2015 & Tuesday 17th March
So each of your teachers would need to attend both parts but you have 3 options of dates to choose
In terms of a venue - can anyone offer to host for any of the dates
identified please? If we cant find a place to host then we cant go ahead with the sessions! If you can host any please let
me know, along with max numbers you can host, then once the venues are confirmed I will let you know then you can book staff
