How's everyone's summer going? I've been lucky enough to go to Brussels twice in the past 2 weeks and got to see my best friend and her gorgeous family. I also stocked up on lots of new French books and activity 'cahiers' for the new term πŸ“šπŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺπŸ₯πŸ₯–


I hope everyone is enjoying the summer holidays so far. Looking ahead to September, I am now taking bookings for all my classes, including my new class for 7-9 yr olds on a Wednesday from 4-5pm. I also have a couple of spaces for GCSE French students who need a confidence boost, to fill in grammatical gaps or just general practice in a relaxed environment. Drop me a line if I can help and bonnes vacances! πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸΉπŸ–

I haven't posted in a while but we have been super busy! This term we've been learning all about 'Les petites bΓͺtes' πŸ¦‹πŸŒπŸ›πŸœπŸžπŸ•·and 'Sous la mer' πŸ¦ˆπŸ πŸ¬πŸ³πŸ¦­πŸ¦€ and having lots of fun πŸ˜πŸ‡¨πŸ‡΅


These kids have worked so hard to get here, despite the difficulties of the past couple of years. So proud of them. Also, please do give my tuition page a follow, not a Polly Parrot in sight! πŸ™‚πŸ¦œ


A tricky one for a sunny vendredi :-) Le Robert dictionary recently added the French gender-neutral pronouns iel/ielle/iels/ielles to its pages. Jean-Michel Blanquier, the French Minister of National Education, rejected this innovation, stating that β€˜L’écriture inclusive n’est pas l’avenir de la langue franΓ§aise’ (inclusive writing is not the future of the French language).
How should teachers, schools and exam boards, who want to support all students and create inclusive classrooms, navigate this changing linguistic landscape?


Bonne AnnΓ©e! I hope everyone had a lovely festive time, Covid-free. Emails coming today about the coming half term's lesson. I can't wait to get back to work πŸ˜ŠπŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

Day 9: A little interruption to my craft posts. I teach such brilliant kids who have kind and very generous parents. This is just one afternoon's Christmas gifts. Love my job!

Day 4. Gotta be an advent craft. The children like to decorate these and then I send them home with a little bag of cotton wool balls to stick on each number for every day of advent. By Christmas Day Papa NoΓ«l has a full beard β€πŸŽ…

Day 3 We recently read "Pop mange de toutes les couleurs" about a little dinosaur who changes into the colours of everything he eats. And then we made some Pop pictures of our very own using sticky backed plastic and strips of paper. The children did a great job!

Day 2: Recently we were learning about body and face parts and we read the brilliant "Va t'en Grand Monstre Vert" and "Bonne Nuit, Petit Monstre Vert" by Ed Emberley. We did lots of related activities and also did some topic-related crafts. On this particular day the children made their own monstres from play dough β€πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

In our French classes we do a lot of crafts and I often forget to post them on social media. So this month I am going to attempt to post one set of pics for each day of advent. These are some number biscuits we made towards the start of term when we were learning to count to 10. They turned out so well πŸ₯°πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

For the past couple of weeks in class we have been learning about body parts. We've sung several songs, including "Savez-vous planter les choux?" so last week we thought it only right to plant some actual cabbage seeds and decorate the pots! This week I got an update on some of them. Aren't they doing brilliantly?


La famille Polytots are off to France for the first time in 2 years. Excited doesn't quite cover it! πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

'Urgent' action needed to reverse decline in pupils studying languages 07/10/2021

Such a shame that this is happening in schools, though sadly I am not surprised. Speaking another language is a life skill that will always be useful but the GCSE curriculum really saps the joy out of learning it. Not with me though! πŸ˜€ If you would like your child to absorb another French in a fun, relaxed way, do get in touch! πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ₯°

'Urgent' action needed to reverse decline in pupils studying languages Irish teachers and speakers say "urgent and decisive action" is needed to reverse the decline.
