Trip to France boosts language skills

Trip to France boosts language skills

Posted: 12th December 2018

A Christmas market excursion gave students an opportunity to practise their foreign language skills.

A group of 43 Year 7, 8 and 9 students from Royal Docks Academy took a two-day trip to northern France.

They visited Lille Christmas market, made bread and croissants at a bakery, took part in a chocolate-making workshop and sampled the French delicacy of snails. Students also enjoyed lunch overlooking the harbour in Boulogne and visited a sweet factory.

Spencer Russell, head of modern foreign and community languages, said: “This was a cultural trip which gave students an opportunity to speak French.

“Many of our children do not often leave Newham, so this gives them the chance to experience a different culture which makes it a really powerful trip. It deepened cultural awareness of things like food, every day life and people and took them out of what they knew. Some had never been away from their parents or done anything touristy.

“Students have grown in confidence and now have real scenarios to draw on when it comes to their French language. Year 8, for example, are working on the past tense and can now draw on real experiences of when they visited the Christmas market in Lille.”
