A primary teacher learns and teaches French at the same time Year 3 teacher Andy Gaunt is facing the biggest challenge of his professional career – and one which will be common to many primary teachers. He is teaching French to his pupils when he has no knowledge of the subject whatsoever. Andy is planning to use a clever trick – he is importing a large puppet called Pierre and using him as an eye-catching prop. Andy learns a little French for each lesson and uses Pierre to teach it to the class – the conceit being that Pierre is teaching both pupils and Andy the language. We will also see a French assembly and a French Day at the school in Bradford.
