Recently we have made French cards and sent them to friends that live all of the way in France.These were also Christmas cards as it is already getting close to the big day!
Recently, we have been sending videos to schools in France.
We have been recieving videos from them saying, ‘my name is…’ in english and we are sending them videos of us saying,’my name is…’in french.
Since it is nearly christmas,we made them christmas cards which we coloured and wrote a message inside(in french). Some of us drew are own illestrations inside the card as well as the picture we shaded in on the front.We have posted them to the french schools and we hope to hear from them soon.
In the juniors and infants we have a library, the junior librarian is called Mrs.Place she is nice and when you get to y4 she will start speaking French to you and I am kind of getting used to it now. 🙂
After our morning exercise in French we watch a slideshow that is full of pictures of some of France’s most famous landmarks while there is also beautiful French music in the back round that helps us pick up more words that are in the language . We are also looking at some famous chatous (sh-at-oes) in France and they were used for people who didn’t have anywhere that was safe to stay in .
Today we’re in French, like every normal fabulous Friday. As usual we start with a little French quiz to warm up our brains and test our French knowledge. There is a lovely piece of French music played after this and some artwork from famous French artists or pictures of certain places in France shown during the music. We also say the names off the song and the pictures, also getting us into the French mood. Following on from this we look at the Les defis savour (the learning challenge) this helps us see our French targets for the day. We do a number of things in different lessons but today we started where we left off last time, French questions and the answers to them. I bet your thinking he’s forgotten about French dates well I haven’t, that’s now. We say what date it is today, tomorrow and yesterday. Next is birthday time! We sing happy birthday to anyone who’s birthday is in the present week (in French obviously). So there you have it the first part of the French lessons in 6B I hope you got a vague idea of what it’s like inside 6B’s classroom on a Friday. Oh and I nearly forgot we learn all these things from the great Madam Underwood and the also the help from a French lady named, Madmoiselle Dobourg. Thank you for reading my writing about French in 6B be sure to expect more and always remember to keep speaking French !!
In science we have a new topic. It is life cycles and right now, we are doing the parts of a flower.
In this week’s digital leader session, the year 6 pupils used the fantastic new app Toontastic 3D to create their own animated film. The finished projects were fantastic and will definitely be another app we use to enhance our learning in class. Take a look at some of their efforts:
