Depuis la rentrée scolaire 2014, notre établissement propose une section européenne anglais au niveau 4ème.
Cette section permet un plus grand approfondissement de l'anglais et de la culture anglophone ainsi qu'une ouverture à l'international. Pour atteindre cet objectif et permettre un plus grand travail interdisciplinaire, les élèves qui bénéficient de ce programme sont regroupés dans une seule classe. Le cinéma est au coeur du projet pédagogique annuel de la classe avec la réalisation d'un court métrage, l'étude de films en version originale et la participation à deux festivals cinématographiques, l'un britannique, l'autre européen. Deux heures d'anglais supplémentaires par semaine sont inclues dans l'emploi du temps, le programme "anglais-euro" est en lien direct avec celui de français, les cours de mathématiques et d'EPS proposent aussi des activités en anglais. Séjours, échanges, correspondance avec des élèves britanniques et suédois, entretiens avec des intervenants anglophones... sont autant d'activités proposées tout au long de l'année.
The school year is drawing to an end. It has been a very busy year for the European class and one of the highlights has been making a film, from start to finish. The cinéma Les Cardinaux in Damgan has kindly agreed to host a special evening for the grand premiere of " Changing Colours " on May 26th 2015 at 8pm. Presentations in English and in French by the pupils will alternate with films throughout the evening.
Nous sommes déjà fin mai. La classe européenne a été très active tout au long de cette année scolaire et plus particulièrement impliquée dans la réalisation d'un court métrage. Le cinéma Les Cardinaux à Damgan a gentiment accepté de nous accueillir pour la grande première de " Changing Colours " le mardi 26 mai 2015 à 20h. Tout au long de la soirée, des présentations en anglais et en français par les élèves accompagneront les différentes vidéos qui retraceront le travail de l'année.
We have been counting the number of sleeps until the big day since early January. This morning, we were down to four sleeps until Friday. Excitement and anticipation are building up for what is going to be a great class trip. The pupils have done a lot to raise money towards the trip :
● organizing a tremendous evening at the cinema,
● wrapping Christmas presents at Super U,
● selling Gaël's croissants and other treats to family, friends and neighbours, AND delivering them in time for breakfast !
One question remains : which musical are we going to see ? Watch this space for the answer !

Arrivée à l'YHA St. Paul,s. Traversée tranquille sur un ferry qui ne transportait que 55 passagers en tout... Grâce au talent de notre chauffeur, nous avons rejoint Londres sans encombre avec une première visite panoramique. Ce matin après une bonne nuit de sommeil, nous referons le tour de la ville en car avant d'aller admirer la relève de la garde. Have a nice day !
Sunday, February 1st Va-t-on nous ouvrir les portes de Buckingham Palace ?
En tous cas nous aurons apprécié le spectacle de la relève de la garde. Le froid pince mais le swing de la fanfare royale nous réchauffe. L'après midi, nous flânons à Camden, où les marchandages, in English please, vont bon train.
Have a nice day !

Après le Natural History Museum ce matin, nous voici au Natural History Museum. Nous avons pris le métro quatre fois aujourd'hui, nous sommes pratiquement de vrais Londoniens !

A demain ! See you tomorrow !

Wednesday, February 4th
Enfin la révélation, après des semaines de suspense et de pronostics. Et non, ce n'est pas Le Roi Lion, trop bébé, ni Mamma Mia, malgré la Suède, mais, et c'est bien logique, les Misérables. On le savait ! On s'en doutait ! On avait deviné ! On aurait même pu jouer dedans, puisque ce matin nous étions acteurs chez Shakespeare. On a pleuré, on a ri, on n'a pas tout compris mais un peu quand même. Ensuite, on a marché, marché, ... On connaît Londres comme notre poche. Tom, Léna, Amandine and Armelle.
Thursday, February 5th
Aujourd'hui, nous avons fait les artistes à la Tate Modern, nous avons remonté le temps au London Museum, et puis nous avons fait nos bagages, la tête pleine de souvenirs.
Bye bye London, we'll be back !
On December 16th, 2014, the pupils of the European class proudly presented the film About Time to over 100 viewers who had come to support them. This special evening was a great success and the result of many hours of work and practice. The following texts were written by the pupils themselves.
Maryline FENNER, Armelle LE COUSTUMER, Servane CHAMPS
"Good evening everybody, We hope you are well. We are happy to present to you the film, About Time. We saw it at the British Film Festival of Dinard with our class and we loved it ! This film was written and directed by Richard Curtis. It was produced by Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Nicky Kentish Barnes. The film is two hours long and it came out on 6th November 2013."
by Clément and Erwann
"A few words about the Director Richard Curtis was born in New Zealand in 1956. He has lived in London for 35 years. He has written and/or directed twelve movies and series like Mr Bean, Four Weddings and a Funeral. His films are touching and they have a gentle kind of humour which allows us to identify with the actors. Curtis had the idea for this movie when he realized that if he had only 24 hours to live, he would want to do things of everyday life."
By Ylona, Maud and Coralie

by Pauline and Léna

Tim decides to use this power to find a girlfriend but he is also going to discover that this power doesn’t spare him life’s misfortunes."

By Louis, Axel, Amandine, Marie, Eve, Arthur, Ianis, Robin, Léo-Paul, François-Félix and Gaultier
"Why About Time We chose this film because it was unanimously approved by the European Class of Collège Ste Thérèse. It’s a beautiful love story and also a family story. It is funny but also sad. We chose to present it to you in English tonight at the Cinéma Jeanne d’Arc. We want to share with you a special evening with this beautiful story in its original language. And we also need to raise money for our trip to England !"

Le jeudi 2 octobre, la classe européenne s'est rendue à Dinard pour participer au 25ème festival du film britannique. Deux films avaient été sélectionnés pour ce festival spécial scolaires : The Selfish Giant de Clio Barnard et About Time de Richard Curtis. Ces deux films très différents ont donné lieu à une analyse filmique et à la rédaction de critiques. Cette journée à Dinard a également permis une découverte de la ville et de son passé étroitement lié à la présence de résidents britanniques. A Dinard, les Union Jack flottent à côté des drapeaux tricolores, Hitchcock veille sur la plage de l'Ecluse, les salons de thé sentent bon les scones, les bow windows sont là pour rappeler l'influence britannique sur l'architecture des villas. Que ce soit sur la Promenade des Alliés ou près des salles de cinéma, les occasions de parler anglais n'ont pas manqué. Dinard compte en effet encore beaucoup de britanniques parmi ses habitants. Arthur, Mattéo, Robin et Léo-Paul ont fait une belle rencontre près du Balnéum, rencontre qui leur a permis d'obtenir des points supplémentaires pour leur quiz ! Quant à Ylona, elle s'est vite empressée d'aller chercher des réponses à l'Office du Tourisme ... pour partager avec Robin, ce matin, en cours d'anglais euro, le grand prix de ce quiz spécial Dinard 2014.
