Primary teacher Andy Gaunt is facing the biggest challenge of his professional career - teaching French to his pupils with no knowledge of the language whatsoever.
This daunting challenge will be familiar to many primary teachers, with every seven-year-old set to be entitled to learn a new language from 2010 under new government policy.
Andy learns a little French for each lesson and then uses a puppet called Pierre to help communicate with the class. The concept is that Pierre is teaching both the pupils and Andy at the same time.
