The Joy of French

I WAS interested and pleased to read that another primary school in Lowestoft has performed and sung in French.

For the past 19 years pupils at St Mary's Roman Catholic Primary School have performed La Nativité, in French.

I WAS interested and pleased to read that another primary school in Lowestoft has performed and sung in French.

For the past 19 years pupils at St Mary's Roman Catholic Primary School have performed La Nativité, in French.

It is quite a tradition. Spanish was introduced last year so pupils in year four started the performance this time by singing the carol Silent Night, in Spanish. At the end of the French La Nativité, Christmas and new year greetings were announced in some of the languages used by adults and children at the school eg Italian, Russian, Gaelic.

The audience, made up of pupils, parents and friends, really enjoyed the experience. All the children worked really hard, gained in confidence, and had fun using a foreign language in a practical way.

A video of the play is to be shown and shared with other modern language teachers in Suffolk.
