Sydenham High Junior School begins French partnership
Sydenham High Junior school has partnered with a small school in the Haute-Savoie region of France. Year 5 girls have already written brightly decorated letters to the children of Ville-en-Sallaz, helping them to hone their written French skills. In return, the girls received a DVD about school and local life, including the notion of skiing to school in winter!
The girls have also been curious to find out the difference between schooling in France and the UK. French children’s lack of uniform and two-hour restaurant-style lunches were chief among the attractions of moving to France. The girls are looking forward to receiving letters from their French pen pals very soon.
