Barrow Hedges - Wednesday - French - Progress Report
BARROW HEDGES – Y4/Y5/Y6
TEACHER: Francine Hymans
TERM – Autumn 1- 2017/2018
First of all, I was very pleased to see so many familiar faces back to the French Club this year.
We started our half term by making sure we all knew how to introduce ourselves, saying our names and how old we are. We also chose few adjectives to describe ourselves, such as “sportif, pétillante, énergique, timide, etc”.
We dedicated 2 sessions to learn about sports. First by learning few actions such as “Sauter, courrir, passer le ballon, taper le ballon” (To jump, to run, to pass the ball, to kick the ball). And to put into practice those new expressions, we had a mini Olympics. We then focused on learning the sports were those actions are involved and their names in French. The children were then able to use “j’aime, je n’aime pas, j’adore, je déteste” to give an opinion on the various sports.
With the weather changing, it was the perfect opportunity to start talking about the forecast and learn few expressions. “Il fait chaud/froid” (It’s hot/cold), “Il fait soleil” (it’s sunny), “Il pleut” (It’s raining), “il neige” (It’s snowing). They really enjoyed practicing the words with a game of Hot &Cold in French of course!
Autumn was our last topic this half term. After learning the new vocabulary, we went onto an “Autum hunt” outside. Split into teams, the children had a list of “Autumn items” (in French) to find. They had lots of fun collecting leaves (feuilles) of different colour, as well as sticks, chesnuts (châtaignes) and conkers (marrons). Followed by a quiz about l’Automne. They were all very competitive and enjoyed the challenge.
FOR THE REST OF THE TERM WE WILL COVER:
Music and musical instruments
Festive season in France (Christmas)
