Bonjour mes amis!
We are learning to say hello and goodbye, to say how we are, how old we are, count to 20 and the colours in French.
We sing songs, say rhymes, play games and have conversations with our French puppets. We save reading and writing our French words for Year 3.
We are learning how to spell and write grammatically correct French sentences. We love the songs, raps and games which help us to remember the words.
Years 3 and 4: This Autumn term we are learning how to talk about our pets and our families, to count to 40, French phrases for greetings and general classroom language,
Years 5 and 6: This Autumn term we are learning the French phrases for talking about sports and leisure activities, saying what we like and dislike, and using adjectives to say why. We can count to 100 in French and conduct a large part of our lesson in French!
