Work from 9N – could have been any of you really, but I like this one because I showed it to your dad and he went “oh, yes, very nice” and wandered off. Half an hour later he came back to find me and said, “Hang on, she’s only been doing Spanish for half a year 3 lessons a fortnight”. I like it when people are gobsmacked. And thanks for Mrs C for taking the lesson. Perhaps I should be away more often if this is what happens! Watch out for: How she throws you into the action with clever use of direct speech, coherent paragraphs, clever combination of tenses to create convincing narrative, personal touches…

Child’s Story Book Project: In Year 9, pupils create a children’s story book in French for a local primary school. Here is one created by Mr C Wells. He actually made it when he was in Year 10, but it’s a great example of what you can do. If you are in Year 9, make sure you look at this before you start writing yours! tres agreable
