As part of " la journée internationale du livre" ( World Book day) , the French 3rd year have recorded themselves reading French Children books. Those videos will be sent to their local primary schools so that they can share not only their love of reading but also to give a first introduction of " la langue française " to those attending those schools.

PDF guide to install App

If you click on the links above these will bring you directly to the IClass website from where the app can be downloaded. It is envisaged that all school/communications will migrate to the school app in the very near future, so I am asking all parents/guardians to download the app as soon as possible.

Once downloaded and running, the school will be populating the app with forms, updates, letters etc.
