YEAR GROUP

TASK

NOTES

Bonjour! I hope that you are all safe and staying healthy, and that you are ready to learn some more vocabulary to help you understand the French version of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” later on this term.

This week, I would like you to continue practising the French words for the life-cycle of a butterfly listed in the “Notes” box. Type them up into Google Translate and listen to how they are pronounced, then repeat the words.

Keep practising your days of the week too by logging into Espresso Primary and follow this path: 

Click on KS2, Languages, French-Allez!, Les Jours de la Semaine.*

First watch the video, then click on “Talking Dictionary” and practise repeating the words for the days of the week, then click on “Activities” and play the “Days of the Week” game.

* Even though the “Days of the Week” activities come under KS2 in Espresso Primary, they are accessible to Year 2.

Bonjour! I hope that you are all safe and staying healthy, and that you are ready to learn some more vocabulary to help you understand the French version of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” later on this term.

This week, I would like you to continue practising the days of the week in French. Listen to this song again on YouTube:

Then, I would like you to learn the French words for the life-cycle of a butterfly. Draw your own picture of the life-cycle of a butterfly using the model in English, then use the French words in the box on the right to label your picture. Remember to send me a photograph of your work through Purple Mash!

Bonjour! I hope that you enjoyed the lovely weather over half-term and that you are all safe and staying healthy.

This term we are going to work on the French version of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. In order to start off this topic, I would like you to have a try at learning the names of the days of the week in French. Listen to this song on YouTube which should help you with how the words sound and how they are spelt:

When you think you know the song well enough, which not copy the words onto 7 pieces of card, mix them up and then see if you can put them back in the order of the week?

I hope that you are all safe and staying healthy.

This week I would like you to continue practising your spellings of numbers 1-10 in French. Watch the “hopscotch” video again:

Then ask a grown-up or older sibling to help you go on Espresso. Click on KS2, then find the Languages section and click on the “French – Allez!” button. In the left-hand-side menu, open the “Find Out More” tab. Next, click on “Things to do”, then click on “How many?”  and you will find some simple sums in French. Try and type your answers using the French spellings of the numbers.

If you are able to print your French Maths work from Espresso, remember you can take a picture of it and send it to me via Purple Mash @2email.

I hope that you are all well and that you had an egg-cellent Easter!

This week I would like you to practise your spellings of numbers 1-10 in French and try to memorise them.

Watch the following video and have a really good look at the spellings of the numbers:

BBC Bitesize Playground counting game

If you are lucky enough to have an outdoor space and some chalk, you could draw your own “Marelle” game and play like the children in the video. Alternatively, you could ask a grown-up to cut 20 small squares out of an old cereal box (all the same size). Then you could write the digits 1-10 and the French spellings on the squares, shuffle them and arrange them face down on the table to play a memory game. Have fun!

 

OPTIONAL FRENCH HOME LEARNING

EASTER HOLIDAYS

 

YEAR GROUP

TASK

NOTES

 KS1

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 draw a picture to show what you have found out. If you do, why not take a picture and email it to me on Purple Mash?

Joyeuses Pâques!

 

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?

Try and sing along to the song (even if it’s fast!). Tell someone at home what the story and song are about and what French words you’ve been learning.

Sorry Year 2! I sent the wrong task for you last week but I hope you enjoyed counting to 19 and back, and that you remembered the “Y a une pie” song from last year!
