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 practise making sentences in French!

This week I would like you to re-use all the vocabulary that you have learned over the past few weeks to make a sentence about where you live. Here is an example (I have underlined the words that you might need to change to make it into a sentence about yourself):

J’habite dans une maison à Bridgwater en Angleterre.

To illustrate your sentence, draw a picture of your home and a picture of yourself by the front door or looking out of the window.

 

Types d’habitation :

 

Un appartement

Une caravane

Un château

Une ferme

Une maison

 

 

Remember to share your beautiful work with me by taking a picture of it and then email it to me via PurpleMash!

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 term you are going to find out how to talk / write about where you live. Now that you know the French names of some towns and countries (from the work I set you last half-term), I would like you to learn some vocabulary for different types of homes this week. Please look at the list of words in the next box and try and guess what they mean. Then use Google Translate or ask someone at home to check if you were right. Finally, copy the list onto paper (including the title) and draw a picture for each word. Circle the word that best describes your own home. Remember to check your spellings and present your work neatly please. 

Types d’habitation :

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 start learning the French names of some countries and towns/cities. To do that, you’ll need to log into Espresso Primary and watch two videos. You can find them by following this path:

KS2 / Languages / French – Le Monde

Then select “Des Villes” (Towns) and “Des Pays” (Countries). How many place names do you recognise? Which countries/towns have similar names in English and French? Which are very different? (Open the “Script” tabs for help).

If you have a printer, you could also print out a blank map of the world and ask an adult to help you write the names of countries and towns from the two videos onto it.

The second one is new and you can find it on the BBC Teach website:

Sing along to the two videos and follow the moves. When you are confident enough, why not perform them to someone in your house – you could even try and teach them too! Have fun!

 

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

3

Design a French birthday card for the person who is next going to have a birthday in your house. Think about the sort of things they like to make your design really personal. Make sure you write “Joyeux Anniversaire” neatly on the front. Inside the card, write the message “Passe une belle journée! Gros bisous!” (“Have a beautiful day! Big kisses!) and sign your name.

You can be as creative as you wish with the design of the card (use whatever materials/techniques you like best – colouring pencils, felt-tip pens, paint, collage, etc), but remember that presentation should be excellent, as you want to make the birthday person really happy. When you are done, perhaps you could take a photo of your card and share it with me via Purple Mash email?
