St Mary's Infant site - French - Progress Report
Summer CLUB: ST MARY’S INFANT (YEAR 1’S)
TEACHERS: JANE EVANS
TERM: SUMMER 2017
PRESENTATION: 4th July, 3.45 pm
Our aim is to ensure children understand and learn to love the culture of France and to gain good listening and speaking skills which will hold them in good stead for the rest of their life. We use lively role play, games, bingos, songs and activities to make French culture both enjoyable and memorable.
It is a pleasure to teach your children and I hope they enjoy the lessons as much as I do. If you have specific questions, please see me after the club or send an email to email@example.com
TOPICS COVERED THIS TERM
We started the term by celebrating ‘le poisson d’avril’, literally ‘the April Fish’, the French equivalent of April Fool’s Day. The aim is to stick a picture of a fish (le poisson) on someone’s back without them noticing and then, when successful, declaring ‘le poisson d’avril!’ The children absolutely loved this activity and wanted to play it over and over again! SONG: Petit poisson.
We combined this with a general warm-up session after the Easter holidays, playing our favourite games to revise familiar themes such as numbers, colours, animals, food and drink etc.
The remainder of this half term we have covered the following topics and vocabulary:
‘J’aime/je n’aime pas’ (I like/I don’t like)
We practiced with the food and drink vocabulary previously learnt, for example, la glace ( ice cream), les bonbons (sweets), le fromage (cheese), le beurre (butter), playing much loved games of Bingo, Snap and Stepping Stones.
J’aime la glace (I like ice cream). Je n’aime pas le beurre (I don’t like butter)
Song: J’aime la baguette (no.32 of French Club CD)
Le Fruit et Plus de Fruit (Fruit and More Fruit)
La banane, une orange, la poire (pear), la pomme (apple), la fraise (strawberry), du raisin (grapes),
Un ananas (pineapple), la cerise (cherry), la pêche (peach), un abricot (apricot), le citron (lemon).
Je mange (I eat)
The children tasted some real fruit and used the new vocabulary when asking for some. They loved drawing a funny face using different types of fruit for the features. They played lively games to reinforce the vocabulary.
Song: Pomme de Reinette et Pomme d’Api (No.35)
Les Légumes (Vegetables)
La carotte, le chou (cabbage), la tomate, le radis (radish), le champignon (mushroom), les petits pois (peas)
Rhyme : Mon petit lapin est dans le jardin
