Year 7 students receive cards from French penpals.
French class exchange handmade cards with students from Collège Emile Combes, Pons.
“Are we actually writing to real people?” exclaimed one thrilled student when we opened a big brown envelope containing beautiful cards personally written to them by students from the “Collège Emile Combes” in Pons, France. (Pons is a beautiful medieval town situated between Cognac and Bordeaux). 7fr2/x were very excited when they read what the French students wrote about their home, school and pets.
Our very eager students are now preparing their reply to their new pen friends on the topic of school life all in French, “bien sûr”!
It was last year that Louise Franklin, English teacher in Pons and aunt to one of our students in Highcliffe, contacted me to enquire about the possibility of an exchange of correspondence between our students. What a fantastic opportunity it is, as isn’t it what it is all about, communicating? Thank you Mrs Franklin.
