Today we visited La Fontaine Academy in Bromley – a bilingual English-French free primary school. We were met by the Headteacher Sebastien Chapleau who gave us a warm welcome in the Reception and invited us to his office . We talked about our project and Mr Chapleau kindly answered our endless questions. We also talked about La Fontaine’s co-operation with STEP academy trust.
Then, the Headteacher gave us a tour of the school where we were able to see children receiving bilingual education in action. How exciting!
Smartly dressed, in tidy, colourful classrooms we have seen two reception classes highly engaged in their learning. Year 1 was busy doing maths and Year 2 were just having their guided reading session. When we entered their classroom we were approached by a little girl who turned out to be a class ambassador replied to my ‘Ca va bien?’ with ‘Ca va bien.’
Well done La Fontaine!
We left La Fontaine Academy with a promise to keep in touch:)
Merci beaucoup La Fontaine!
Merci Monsieur Chapleau!
Our project is more and more recognised. Recently, there was an article on www.anglia.today about us http://www.anglia.today/edukacja/pierwsza-szkola-angielskopolska-w-wielkiej-brytanii.
There is also an article coming up this week in Cooltura – the Polish weekly magazine.
