French theatre visit

Posted on: 20 May 2015 by Weston Green School | Category: Early Years, Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2

 We were delighted recently to welcome a French theatre workshop to our school.  Children from Reception to Year 6 enjoyed the opportunity to be fully immersed in French whilst watching and participating in some fantastic drama. Not a word of English was to be heard during a lively and humorous performance of two traditional English fairytales: Boucle d’Or (Goldilocks) and Les Trois Petits Cochons (The Three Little Pigs). The children’s understanding of the French was enhanced by their familiarity with the stories and we were impressed with how captivated they were. The children grasped what was happening and responded beautifully. The level of interaction and audience participation (all in French, bien sûr) was high and a lucky few pupils were asked to come up to the front and take part in the drama too.

Some Year 5 pupils commented afterwards that they felt a lot more confident about their French trip having realised that they can grasp what is going on when a native French speaker holds forth! WGS pupils had a marvellous chance to develop their listening and speaking skills in French and their enthusiasm was so contagious that we can’t wait for another visit.
