Our annual French Summer Challenge was yet again a great success with lots of brilliant work submitted, including for the new advanced platinum award for pupils in Year 10 and above.
A number of our pupils completed the range of tasks, which are designed by Aston University to keep them practising their language skills over the holiday. The tasks included sending an email in French, watching a French film, reading a French blog or spending a whole day speaking only in French. The pupils received their Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze certificates, depending on how many of the activities they completed.
” I enjoyed the activities, my favourite was watching a french animation called “J’ai perdu mon corps.” I also attempted to make macarons which proved very difficult to get right, but I gave it a good go!” Ed, Year 9
