IMPORTANT - FRENCH WEBSITE QUESTIONNAIRE FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN

It would be very helpful for me to know how you got on with French since the school's closure so I have created a questionnaire so that you and your parents can give feedback. The more children and parents take part the better so please try and do this; it should take no more than 10 minutes.
Please note that as this is part of my research for an MA you cannot do the questionnaire on your own and YOUR PARENT(s) MUST GIVE THEIR CONSENT and complete their section before you can do yours.

Click on the link below to do the questionnaire with your parents:

FRENCH AT BELMONT: Important announcement

I have one big favour to ask Belmont children and parents: I am currently working on my Master’s dissertation (in Applied Linguistics and second language learning and teaching) and I have chosen Belmont’s French website and online teaching for this project. Therefore, for the next two months, I would need pupils to take part in regular questionnaires and possibly online interviews to get feedback about the website and how it is helping you learn. All participants will be anonymous in the dissertation. I will follow the British Association for Applied Linguists’ (BAAL) recommendations for good practice and complete Kingston University’s ethical review, and I need parents’ consent for children to participate in this project.

Please contact me if you would like to know more and if you are interested in taking part in this project: sradet-kirby@belmont.hounslow.sch.uk

Merci beaucoup!

 

*Please note: you must login to your Belmont Google account to access the website.

 

PSHE

There have been some big changes in school life for a lot of people with some children starting back at school. You might have siblings, cousins, friends or parents who are going to go back in the coming weeks. We wanted to make sure that you had a channel for any worries you might have about this. We have created a google form that will act as a Worry Box - just like the ones in school. You do not have to complete it but if you do feel worried you can share them here. 

Worry Box      

You can also read the story Ruby's Worry which shows us the importance of sharing our worries.
