KS2 FRENCH HOME LEARNING – SUMMER 2 WEEK 5

 

Bonjour! Comment ça va? I hope you are all safe and well.

 

Sunday 21st June was of course the day of the Summer Solstice and also, in France and in many other countries, “Make Music Day” (“la Fête de la Musique”). To celebrate this occasion (a little bit late…), I have put together a playlist of French songs that I would like you to listen to on YouTube. We listened to some of them last week with the Year 4 & 5 children who are in school, and they really liked them so I hope you will enjoy them too! Why not send me an email on Purple Mash to let me know which one is your favourite?

Bonjour! 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 look at the Street Map of Céaucé again. I realised last week that the scanned photo of the map I put on this page didn’t come out very clearly, so the words from the key are now in the “Notes” section of this table. Please go through them and have a go at guessing their meanings. If you managed to do that already last week, go on Google Maps, find Céaucé and use the Street View option to explore our twin town from the comfort of your home! Pay attention particularly to signage and architecture. Be really observant and let me know what differences you have spotted between a French village and a British one. Have fun on your virtual travels!

Bonjour! Thank you to those of you who have sent me some Rainbows for Céaucé. I have now shared them with our partner school and the Twinning Committee here in North Petherton.

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 look back at the work I set you before Easter about “Towns & Villages” vocabulary. Go through the names of shops and buildings that you learned, then have a really good look at the Street Map of Céaucé. Your first task is to spot the location of Ecole Lancelot du Lac on the map. Your second task is to copy out the “Légende” (key) and translate each word into English. Finally, tick the buildings / services that we also have here in North Petherton.

 

Remember to photograph your translated “Légende” and email it to me using @2email on Purple Mash.

 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 should have been the time when a group of visitors from Céaucé would have arrived in North Petherton for a few days. As this visit can’t happen at the moment, I would like you to produce a piece of artwork that will show the people of Céaucé that we are still thinking of them. I will then send photos of your work to the members of the Twinning Committee here in North Petherton, and in Céaucé.

Search for “rainbow template a4” on Google and select and print a rainbow with two clouds attached (or draw it yourself). Write “North Petherton” in the cloud on the left and “Céaucé” in the cloud on the right. Write “Nous pensons à vous” (“We are thinking of you”) along the top of the rainbow and “Soyez prudents” (“Stay safe”) underneath the rainbow. Finally, colour in the rainbow very carefully (or use paint or bits of colourful paper). Remember the order of the colours!

 

Remember to photograph your finished work and email it to me via PurpleMash before the end of the week.

 

You may also want to ask your parents permission to display this piece of work in your window!

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 

  1. Revisit your “School Subjects” vocabulary from last week by playing a memory game on Espresso. Log into Espresso Primaryand click on KS2 / Languages / French - “L’école”. Next click on “Activities” on the left of the screen and select “Memory”. Have fun!
  2. Practise your listening comprehension around School Subjects. On Espresso again, click on KS2 / Languages / French - “L’école” / Les Cours / Favourite Subjects. Watch the video a few times and read the script too. Do you understand what subjects the children like and why?

Using the vocabulary from the video, can you answer this question:

Quelle est ta matière préférée?

 

Here is an example answer:

Ma matière préférée, c’est le Français parce que c’est passionnant!

This week I would like you to start memorising vocabulary for School Subjects. Start by logging into Espresso and click on KS2 / Languages / French - “L’école”. Next click on “Talking Dictionary” on the left of the screen and select “Subjects”. You can hear each word when you click on it. Remember to practise repeating the words, at least 3 times. Finally, make your own Memory card: copy all the school subjects IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER and draw a logo for each one instead of writing the English translation.

Remember you can take a picture of your French work and send it to me via Purple Mash @2email.

I look forward to seeing your vocabulary lists!

 

FRENCH HOME LEARNING – WEEK 6 (Monday 4th – Friday 8th May 2020)

 

Bonjour!

 

I hope you’re all safe and well!

 

This week I have put together some ideas for craft & vocabulary activities relating to VE Day, which is a very important date for France too. You can find the activities in the Projects folder. Just click on the rainbow and scroll down. Have fun!

This week I would like you to watch the same video as last week on BBC Bitesize

A Primary School in Marseille

 

Now I would like you to make a list of all the words and phrases you heard in the clip and recognised from having learned them before, and another list of new words that the video has taught you. Write the English translations of the new words, or draw a picture that will help you remember what they mean.

 

Remember you can take a picture of your French work and send it to me via Purple Mash @2email.

I look forward to seeing your vocabulary lists!

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 find out what is the same and what is different if you compare our school to a French primary school. To help you with this, I would like you to watch the following video on BBC Bitesize:

A Primary School in Marseille

After watching the video a few times, you should be able to record the facts that you have learned in a table comparing French schools and British schools. Draw a two-column table and name the columns “What’s the same?” and “What’s different?”

You could then have a conversation with a grown-up at home about whether you would like to attend a French school, which of the two school set-ups you prefer and why.

 

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! 

 

 

FRENCH HOME LEARNING – WEEK 2 (Monday 30th March – Friday 3rd April 2020)

 

YEAR GROUP

TASK

NOTES

Complete last week’s task if you didn’t manage to finish it, then draw a street map of North Petherton, labelling the different buildings / shops in French. Concentrate on the A38 from Pyne’s the Butchers to the Rugby Club, but also include the surgery and of course, our school!

Keep your work safe so we can send it to our French partner school when possible.

Ask a grown-up to help you remember where the different buildings are along the road.

 

If you feel that a piece of A4 paper is going to be too small for you to display your work neatly, why not use a length of wrapping/parcel paper? 

 

 

 

FRENCH HOME LEARNING – WEEK 1 (Monday 23rd March – Friday 27th March 2020)

 

YEAR GROUP

TASK

NOTES

Yr 4 FRENCH

Our next topic will be “Places in town and villages” so this week, I would like you to look up 10 words for buildings, shops, facilities in a French/English dictionary (if you have one) or on Google Translate. Record those French words in an alphabetical list and draw a picture next to each word to memorise what they mean.

You may want to be creative and make a mini picture book (12 pages, 10cmX10cm), designing a front cover with “Villes & Villages” as a title and then writing and illustrating each one of your 10 words on a separate page. Remember to keep it in alphabetical order!
