Year 10 Alliance Française Poetry Competition

"This term, our Year 10 French class were introduced to a French poem by Madame K to prepare ourselves for the ‘Alliance Française Poetry Competition’ in early June.  Our class was very pleasantly surprised to really enjoy it.  The poem is called ‘Dans mes rêves’ (‘In my dreams’) by Seemone, a French singer who performed at the 2019 Eurovision.

The competition consisted of learning, practicing and performing the poem with Madame K. The poem is about reflecting on, nurturing, and embracing one’s inner child. The class really enjoyed learning this poem together. What seemed like a long unending repetition of verses became a fluent recital of the poem. It was really rewarding to understand and articulate the poem." By Gemma C
