Mme. Harkins’ grade 7 and 8 students completed a French Reader’s Theatre project and presented to the Grade ¾, 5 and 6 French Immersion classrooms of Pope Francis Elementary School.
In the winter-themed Reader’s Theatre productions, students had to include props and a lesson/morale to the story.
The Extended French program is presently offered in the southern region of our Board. Starting in grade 5, the students will receive French language instructions for 25% of his/her day. The subjects that are instructed in French are: Social Studies/History/Geography, Visual Arts and French. By the end of grade 8, the students will have accumulated a minimum of 1260 hours in French instruction.
