Each week I will let you know the word or phrase for the coming week via the letter in your child’s Reading Journal, it can also be found on the school website under ELearning – French – Phrase of the Week.   For those of you in Year 4, 5 or 6 these phrases will be very familiar as you should recognise them from last year.  The intention is that by the end of Year 6 the children will leave Stonebow with a good phrase bank ready for their language learning at secondary school and to use if they travel to a French speaking country.
