Only three... but we're learning French
11:10am Wednesday 16th January 2013 in News
NURSERY school children have been saying “bonjour” to a new language.
Children from Treetops Nursery in Birlingham, near Pershore, have been developing new language skills with the introduction of a weekly French class.
Youngsters in the Clever Crocs pre-school room are enjoying the interactive sessions run by Helen Broome who has a degree in the language and has also spent time working in France.
Puppets, stories and French nursery rhymes have been enjoyed by the class and every new word is accompanied by an action.
Deputy manager Lisa O’Neill, who also runs the Clever Crocs room, said: “I can’t believe how quickly the children are picking up French words.
“Between them they can remember the name of every single animal that we learnt this week.”
The nursery is holding a storybook themed open day on Saturday, January 26, from 11am to 2pm.
