Barrow Hedges year 1s - French - Progress Report

TEACHER: Francine Hymans
TERM – Summer 1 / 2017


In order to continue practicing our greetings, we’ve learned a new song “Salut mes amis”. The children now know they can greet their friends or family with “Salut” (Hi), instead of “Bonjour”. They enjoyed the song at the beginning of each session.

During our first session, we talked about Pâques en France (Easter in France) and how different or similar the celebrations are in England. The children were surprised and disappointed to learn there wasn’t any Easter bunny in France but instead, the Easter bells! They were reassured to know the children do get chocolate on Easter Sunday though! They practiced the words: oeufs (eggs), chocolat (chocolate) and lapin (bunny rabbit) and enjoyed saying “J’aime le chocolat” (I like chocolate).

We, then, worked on the expressions such as “J’ai chaud, j’ai froid” (I’m hot/I’m cold), “J’ai faim, j’ai soif” (I’m hungry/I’m thirsty) through games and actions. The children enjoyed throwing a ball to each other, pretending it was a ball of fire, while shouting “J’ai chaud”. Then they did the same pretending it was a snowball using the expression “J’ai froid”.

We introduced the notions of “Je mange” (I eat) and “Je bois” (I drink) and started to learn the vocabulary for fruits and vegetables. The children really enjoyed the fruit blind testing as they had to choose from “Une pomme, une poire et une banane” (apple, pear, banana).

SONGS – Salut, salut, salut mes amis. (Greeting song)
Pomme de reinette, pomme d’Api (booklet)

We will continue to explore the topic of food and we will use role-play to pretend we are going to a French market. We will then focus on animals, such as jungle animals, sea animals and forest animals. We will also revise and practice numbers as well as the vocabulary already learned.
