Our Tour de France Day across the school was a great success. Year 4 sang a song in French… ‘Je voyage partout sur mon velo, sur mes pedales je fait la danse.’ Their French unit had been to learn more about the Tour de France, which they most certainly did!
The French artist Matisse was the inspiration for the Year 6 pupils during their Henri Matisse topic.
We have some very talented pupils in Year 6!
Year 4 and 5 have been preparing for a visit from our friends from the theatre. The theatre group perform entirely in French, so we have been learning five songs on an Olympics theme to enable us to join in with confidence. As well as enjoying the performance, 60 children will have the opportunity to participate in a workshop, prior to the performance.
Le lapin gris et le tigre!
We were treated to a brilliant performance by this fabulous theatre company! It was amazing that the children could follow the story – it was spoken entirely in French! Year 4 had been learning some French songs so they could participate in the performance, and a particular favourite was ‘Moi, j’adore les bananes’. They will be returning in the Summer term for Year 5 – I wonder what their next performance will be about?
These Year 1 children have been having great fun with Becki from Lingotot. They’ve been learning some new French vocabulary, songs and producing artwork on the theme of parts of the body (Mon corps).
deux yeux = two eyes
un nez = one nose
une bouche = one mouth
Y4R create Puppet Pals on the Ipads from Julie Hogg on Vimeo.
Y4R have been using an app on the ipads called Puppet Pals, in order to help them practice their French Speaking and Listening. Working in pairs, the children rehearsed their parts, integrating new vocabulary with sentence structures they were already familiar with. Their pronunciations are magnifique!
Quelle heure est-il, madame?
Il est cinq heures et demie.
We learnt about how to write sentences about animals in French. The children took care with their spellings and punctuation, just like they do in their writing in English.
