La bonne vie!

Year 3 have been doing some work on introducing themselves and simple conversation in French with Mrs Beddington.

Below is one example of the conversations they had today, with some excellent pronunciation and confident speaking coupled with a good knowledge of the language needed.

If you’re a pupil, make sure you know what they’re saying. Then use it to practice the phrases along with Jack and Aurelia. If you’re an adult, this is a good chance to brush up on your key phrases.
