Prep Year 6 and 7 Standard French students to begin next units 

In Year 6, our focus is “La vie courante”. The line of inquiry is Food has an important role in culture and in creating connections between people. Through a global context lens of identities and relationships, boys will answer three inquiry questions: What types of foods and drinks are typically offered at a French café or restaurant? Why are cafés important to French culture? and, Is there such a thing as Canadian cuisine? Our approaches to learning will focus on communication and creative thinking skills. 

In Year 7, our focus is “Le shopping”. The line of inquiry is that Fashion reveals one’s identity. Through a global context lens of personal and cultural expression, boys will answer three inquiry questions: What are the different places people buy clothes? How does clothing express personal identity? and, Should one be judged on the clothing he wears? Our approaches to learning will focus on communication and critical thinking skills.
