Barrow Hedges year 3s - French - Progress Report
BARROW HEDGES - Y3
TEACHER: Francine Hymans
TERM – Spring 1- 2017/2018
We’ve started the new half term by covering the French tradition of “La Galette des Rois”, a special cake the French eat to celebrate the Epiphany/the visit of the 3 kings to baby Jesus. The children really enjoyed learning about it, especially the fact a little porcelain/china figurine is hidden in the cake and whoever finds it, will be crown King or Queen for the day. It was fun pretending we were all “Rois” (Kings) et “Reines”’ (Queens). The children concluded it is a great tradition.
To stay within the same topic, our next session focused on the people who were living in castles “chateaux”. We mentioned les Rois, les Reines of course, but also les princes, les princesses, les chevaliers (knights) and what they were wearing, crowns “couronnes”, armours “armures. We also watched a short video of the 12 most famous castles in France. The children liked the look of most castles and their gardens but thought some of them were a bit spooky or far too big!
Our next topic was Winter Sports. We talked about the various sports we could do in Winter such as “Le ski, le snowboard, la luge, le patin à glace”. And that we need to wear “un casque” (helmet) to be safe as well as “un masque” (goggles).
Next, we started to list the clothes we wear the most. The children thought “le tee-shirt” and “le short” were very easy to remember. As a game, the children had to pick some clothes to wear (which I had brought), do a catwalk and say “Je porte …..” (I wear…). It was really fun and every child had a go.
