  • Friday 9 October 2020 La Jolie Ronde The Year 5 children have been very enthusiastic about embarking on the next stage of their “La Jolie Ronde” journey in French. We use this scheme at SCS from Nursery to Year 5. It allows lessons to be lively and interactive, and enables children to learn visually, aurally and kinaesthetically. The children are quickly picking up lots of new French vocabulary and phrases and putting it all to good use. Lessons have been full of games, songs and rhymes, alongside writing activities, and a new element introduced to these children this year is role-play. We use cue cards to remind the children of the vocabulary they have learnt and they use this to hold a ‘real’ conversation. The focus is on correct pronunciation and fluency.
