Thanks to Erasmus Plus, our school staff have participated in French immersion courses. Over the past 18 months, 6 teachers travelled to the beautiful town of Carcassonne, where they not only learnt basic French, but also gained a lot of French cultural awareness. We were extremely privileged to be hosted by a French primary school teacher, who organised a day in her school. We became more familiar with the French educational system and teaching in a French school. During those 8 days in France, the participants were taught about the methodology of teaching French, which we have brought back to our school and use in the French teaching delivered to our pupils. All the participants had a truly amazing experience; some of them have kept the link with the French teacher and course participants from other schools. The quintessence of this course was a personal visit from the French teacher to Manchester. She also found some time to see us in our school! Have a look at some of the wonderful memories the participants have created over this period of 18 months.Carcassonne June 2016: dinner with all participants.Carcassonne  June 2016 - the headteacher and a teacher from our hosting French school.
