Mackenzie Thorpe Centre

The Mackenzie Thorpe Centre is an independent specialist school based in South Bank, Redcar and Cleveland for pupils aged 5-19

Working together to inspire, support, celebrate and equip autistic and neurodiverse people to fulfil their potential in life.

Pupils from the Mackenzie Thorpe Centre’s Griffin Blue class indulged in a little bit of French this week as one of the pupils said they would like to learn some of the French language. 

Exploring France, key moments in their history and even using Duo Lingo to learn a little of the language, pupils increased their awareness of the French language by using their digital skills.

The pupils worked together to find the French words in the interactive wordsearch, identifying places, French food, and phrases before embarking on their independent exploration of the language.

Our pupils were amazing at identifying some common words and phrases.
