French Language Poetry S.V.P.

French Language Poetry S.V.P.

Las week, pupils in First to Third Year French classes worked on some French poems to stretch their intellectual curiosity and give them a different insight into language learning. There was a choice of three poems according to the year group. The poems had been translated by the Lower Sixth French pupils to assist the class teachers and give their input about the importance of looking at poetry when learning a foreign language. The skills developed during the competition will greatly assist the pupils in developing their intonation, accent and pronunciation, essential skills at GCSE level and beyond.  The standard was very high and it proved difficult to choose the finalists who competed for the overall year prize for their respective year groups.


Well done to all the finalists:

First Year: Harriet, Ria, Katie, James, Sophie

Second Year: Quentin, Nicole, Hannah, Anaiya

Third Year: Daniel, Nikita, Oliver, Lauren


Thank you to the French department for their support and to all the Lower Sixth French pupils who so ably led and judged the competition.

The overall winners are:

First Year: Sophie

Second Year: Hannah

Third Year: Dan


Special Prize:

Prix d’interprétation:  Bobby
