Year 8 receive letters from their pen pals in Amiens!

04 March 2022

To bring France into the classroom and give our students an opportunity to use their language skills for a real purpose, we have started up a Pen Pal link between one of our Year 8 classes and some students from a French school in Amiens. 

We sent our first batch of letters at Christmas time, and we have just received our first replies! The students were very excited to read them and find out more about their pen pals, and life as a teenager in France.

Mrs Hall, French teacher, said, “In the future we hope to grow this partnership, to include more students, have video link lessons, and perhaps even visit the school!”
