Êtudes Jèrriaises – Jersey Studies

Office du Jerriaismp3, schools, songs

We’re in the first week of the 6-week Jersey Studies course in Year 4 in most primary schools.

The theme for the Week 1 unit is Les pliaiches et les langues – Places and languages: which languages do you see and speak with well-known places around Jersey and features of the landscape? What do placenames (including names of schools!) mean? Places may have names in more than one language.

The song that introduces this unit is Chant d’Jèrri – Island Song (download the mp3)
