Coronavirus Updates

For any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility,  and who subsequently becomes unable to provide childcare at home –  you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing office@newhorizonschildrensacademy.org.uk or calling 0333 602115 by 9am the day before.

For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday.  Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing.

French

Key Stage 3

In Year 8 students go into more detail in terms of developing their grammar. They will be able to talk about family life and also about someone else. They will be able to talk about jobs, where they live, the weather as well as likes and dislikes. Students will be able to talk about what they do in their free time and will be able to explain what they did during the previous week. Shopping appears to be important to everyone and so students learn how to describe where they go when they go out and what they eat and drink. They will be able to talk about items of clothing. Textbooks in Year 8:

  • All pupils have been given a list of the Year 7 topics which they should have revised during the holidays
  • All pupils are issued with a textbook: Studio 2 Rouge (Pearsons) which is the follow up of Studio 1.
  • They will find the interactive version of the textbooks on Moodle 2 as well as a variety of PowerPoint Presentations and games. (They have access to the Year 7 resources to fill in the gaps in their knowledge)
  • Like in year 7, emphasis is placed on learning in class through participation in class in French as well as regular consolidation and further practice at home.
