France

Our French partner school is Ecole Pierre Vincent, in Alissas.

Alissas is a village near the town of Privas in the Ardeche region.  Ecole Pierre Vincent has 203 pupils and 11 teachers. It is one of the largest primary schools in the educational department of Grenoble.  The headteacher is Dominique (the French pupils call the staff by their first names!).  All the children from preschool to Year 6 learn English.  Woodfall pupils exchange termly letters, information, pictures and emails with their equivalent class.  Some of our Year 6 children now have individual French penfriends who they have corresponded with for over 2 years.

The link was set up in March 2011 and to date there have been 2 teacher exchanges.  Mrs Jones (MFL teacher at Woodfall) went to Alissas in March 2011 and Flore Mignon visited Woodfall in December the same year.

The aims of the link are to develop language learning in a practical situation with the exchange of emails, photos, letters and video links and to increase children's cultural awareness by learning about other cultures and customs.

Here are some photos of Ecole Pierre Vincent from Mrs Jones' visit.
