Year 9 French students presented their plays, ‘Les Trois Petits Cochons’ (The Three Little Pigs’), online recently. The play has become an annual Long Bay College tradition for Year 9’s studying French but this was the first time students have been asked to perform it at home using Microsoft Teams. They learnt the six-minute play by heart at school before lockdown and were due to present it to their class but with that option no longer possible, technology came to the rescue. While the students were asked to be creative with their online performances and to make them as entertaining as possible for Madame Jenkins, it was a speaking assessment so pronunciation, fluency, intonation and expression were all evaluated. The students’ French was very authentic and their teacher said they were “fantastique”!
