Languages - French
Poynter Primary School runs a very successful French program from years 3 to 6. All classes are timetabled to participate in French once a week. The aim of the program is for students to develop Listening, Speaking and Writing skills and cultural awareness over the course of the year.
The French Assembly is perhaps one of the greatest highlights every year, particularly for Year 6 students who are very involved. Students bring Paris to life in the opening scenes and performed skits based on famous French people throughout history. Every year Moulin Rouge is brought to life at Poynter Primary School as students’ perform the ‘Cancan’. Of course the assembly would not be complete without miming, the Tour de France, the Louvre and other famous landmarks.
