Week 1 - French Week

French Research

We thought about all the things we know about France and discussed it as a class. We then researched different topics using an information sheet and the internet. We used the IPads to find out lots of information e.g. the currency they use in France is the euro.  

French Greetings

Bonjour! We recapped our knowledge of French greetings. We then walked around the playground greeting each other and asking how they are. 

Family

We learnt how to introduce our family. We then drew a picture of our families and added the correct phrases e.g. ''voici mon pere'' - here is my dad. 

Counting

We played a game where the class were split into two teams. Each child was given a number from 1 to 12. When they heard their number e.g. "numero huit" - number 8, the child from each team who had that number had to race to touch the cone. The first person to reach the cone gained a point for their team. The children were very competitive but listened very well to their numbers!

How old am I?

Each child took it in turns to say how old they were and the rest of the class had to listen and identify their age. They chose a different age to their real age to challenge the class!

Asking and responding to questions.

In small groups the children created a circle with someone in the middle. The person in the middle threw a ball to a child around the outside asking how old they are e.g "Quel ages as-tu?" - How old are you?. The child around the outside then had to respond e.g. "J'ai sept ans" - I have seven years.

Handwriting Warm-ups!

This term we are focussing on improving our handwriting. To help us, each morning we complete an activity based on a letter of the alphabet. Ask your child what letter we are working on this week. We have also been doing a range of different warm-up activities e.g. butterfly hands and passing an object to another child. 

We were very excited to have a dance workshop from West End Schools. We had to create a performance based  on Roald Dahl's book 'Charlie & the Chocolate Factory'. 

Maths

In Math this week we have been learning about the area of a shape. We created different areas using post-it notes. 

French Cafe

On Thursday we set up the classroom as a French cafe. The children asked for different food in French and said please and thank you in French.

We learnt the names for different pets and then played a game finding the missing pet. We also practised asking and answering the question "Quel as-tu d'animal?"
