Conversations and songs
Year 3 have been introduced to the French language for the first time in school. They have been learning to greet each other and have been practising it regularly during their French lessons, they have greeted their teachers in the morning using their phrases and have shared their knowledge with friends and family.
We immersed ourselves in French culture during our International Day with lots of opportunities to communicate in French. We started the day with some songs related to parts of the body in French then continued to experience the taste of French food as well as activities designed to assist us with our French vocabulary.
After our trip yesterday, Year 6 have been learning French vocabulary related to the beach. Can you translate these colouring instruction sheets the children have created?
Mr McDonald worked with the Year 6 children to learn about zoo animals in French. They read the story 'Cher Zoo' and then created their own zoo themed books written in French.
Mr MacDonald is a fluent French speaker having lived in France when he was younger. He likes to read familiar stories in French to his class. This is an excellent way of becoming more familiar with the language.
