In the French department this week, we have been focussing on preparing for AP2. Year 8 pupils have completed a one to one French speaking exam, which required them to respond to unknown questions as well as prepare some answers in advance. The Year 8 pupils showed great responsibility in organising themselves to arrive on time for their appointments and to conduct the discussion in French. A fantastic experience for pupils in terms of their personal organisation, their confidence and, of course in speaking French! Year 7 pupils have been revising clothes, colours, opinions and justifications in preparation for their French AP2 reading and writing papers. They have demonstrated great adaptability in applying previously seen grammatical structures to a new topic. Here is an example of a revision mind-map that Ishrat in Year 7 produced to help her revise for her French exams.
