Amber’s Language, Music and Play:  musical French classes for your child.

* Please note that I will be having a break from running classes from December 2016 for approx. 6-9 months while I am on maternity leave.*

Classes are designed for children aged 0-4 and 4-6, but I do have some capacity for older children, especially if you are home educating.

Classes for 0-4 year olds.

Come with your little one to a friendly class, where you will sing familiar songs in French, supported by signs based on British Sign Language.  Songs and activities are based around a topic, which changes about every 8 to 10 weeks.

Classes operate in a similar way to toddler music groups.  There is a Hello and Goodbye song, with a number of songs in between based around a topic.  There are games and activities to accompany the songs, and some sessions include interactive story-telling, for example, We’re going on a Bear Hunt.  I run most of my classes at home but I also offer classes to local nurseries.

Outdoor play areaAfter the main singing session, children have opportunity for free play while the adults have opportunity to relax with a coffee and a croissant and ask any questions they have about the French or the sign-language.

To book on to an existing class or to request a new class please contact me at amber@childrensfrenchclasses.co.uk.

 After-school Classes for Children in Reception and Year 1 

This is a small class (no more than 6 children), which started in October 2016. It includes:

  • Signed Singing time (Our core learning activity)
  • Story-time using core text books.
  • Snack time
  • Game time practicing vocab learnt through songs
  • Resources and activities to take home.

Between classes, you can use my YouTube channel to help you and your child learn the French songs together, and you can purchase music to help you practise at home.

Classes are on hold for the first part of 2017 while I am on maternity leave, but if you’d like to be on the waiting list for when classes start up again,  please contact me on amber@childrensfrenchclasses.co.uk to find out more or to reserve your place.
