FRENCH HOME LEARNING – Summer 2 Week 1 (01/06/20 – 05/06/20)

 

YEAR GROUP

TASK

NOTES

 Bonjour! I hope that you enjoyed the lovely weather over half-term and that you are all well and safe, and ready to join in some fun French activities!

This week I would like you to watch this video again to remember how we describe pets in French:

KS2 / Languages / French – En Famille / Les animaux domestiques / Describing Pets

Then, I would like you to have a go at designing a pet passport. Think of your own pet or a friend’s pet, and imagine you are going to take them on holiday abroad one day. What information should appear on the pet’s passport? Use your French vocabulary to enter as many details as possible, and remember to include a picture of your pet!

If you have a real pet passport at home, take a close look at it for inspiration. If you haven’t, use your imagination!

Remember to take a picture of your work and share it with me via PurpleMash @2email

I hope that you are all well and safe, and ready to join in some fun French activities!

This week I would like you to continue learning your “Pets” vocabulary.

Please watch the relevant videos on Espresso again. You will find them by following this path:

KS2 / Languages / French – En Famille / Les animaux domestiques

Then copy the list of words from the script of the “Meet the Pets” video, RE-ARRANGING THEM IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER. Add a drawing or a photograph of each animal so this list becomes your word reference.

If you have a pet yourself and it’s not in the list, look up the French word for it and insert that word in the correct place in your alphabetical list.

Remember to send me pictures of your work via Purplemash @2email.

This week I would like you to start learning some new vocabulary. Our new topic is “Pets” and I know you have been looking forward to this!

For the moment, I would simply like you to familiarise yourself with the new words by watching videos on Espresso. You will find them by following this path:

KS2 / Languages / French – En Famille / Les animaux domestiques

 

Have fun watching all three videos, but concentrate on listening to and repeating the names of the animals in the first one (“Meet the pets”).

I hope that you are all well and safe, and ready to join in some fun French activities!

This week I would like you to continue practising your “Family” vocabulary by watching the following video on BBC Teach “Virtually There”:

Meet the Family

After watching the clip a few times, draw the family photograph that Ben captures at the end and create a label for each member of the group shot, including all the information you have understood about them.

If you would like to practise your French writing, why not have a go at this filling in the blanks in this paragraph:

“Bonjour! Je m’appelle _____. J’ai ______ ans. J’habite à _______. Je vous présente ma ________. Mon _______ s’appelle Eric et ma ______ s’appelle Vanessa. J’ai trois _______ mais je n’ai pas de ______. J’ai deux ______ et un _______. Mon ___________ et ma _________ sont très gentils.”

 

OPTIONAL FRENCH HOME LEARNING

EASTER HOLIDAYS

 

YEAR GROUP

TASK

NOTES

 KS2

During the Easter break, why not research French Easter traditions? What do French children do at Easter that is the same as or different from what we do in the UK? 

You could write a paragraph about what you have found out and illustrate it, or you could look up the French words for “Easter”, “chocolate”, “eggs”, “springtime”, etc… and create an illustrated word mat. 

If you have family in a country other than France, you could draw a picture / write a paragraph about how they celebrate Easter over there. What is Easter called in other languages?

 

Remember you can always take pictures of your work and email them to me on Purple Mash. 

 

Stay safe and keep everyone safe!

Choose the relatives you want to include and write their first name, relation to you (see vocab in the notes), their age and a drawn portrait or photograph.

Mon grand-père   Ma grand-mère

 

Other words you may need:

Step-dad, step-mum
