Vive les vacances!

Dear Parents,

One of the three principal strands on our AERO World Language Standards is Culture – this means that our curriculum encompasses not only vocabulary and grammar, but also gives students insights into the cultures that are expressed through language and literature. At ACST, we aim to share with students an understanding of the practices, products and perspectives of the culture in the target language we offer (French, in this case). We do this by exposing students to various aspects of French culture such as games, songs, folk tales and celebrations.

Now that the winter holidays are almost upon us, we will be looking at some of the ways in which the holiday season is celebrated in France. In particular, we will look at some of the practices and experiences of French children at Christmas time, making comparisons to our own cultures, and identifying similarities and differences in which we celebrate various holidays.

The presentation I will be sharing with the children is shown below:

Please let me know if you have any concerns or queries about the activities we will be doing next week. You’re welcome to come by my classroom (P07) or email me at stharoo@acst.net , your input is always very welcome. 🙂

Warm regards,

Soukeina
