October has gone very quickly and our students have been hard at work!
Our Kindergarteners have finished their unit on days of the week and are now learning how to say how they feel. They are also learning some fun French Halloween songs. Next, they will learn parts of the body.
Our Grade 1 students ended our unit on colours, playing a fun game and singing the famous French song, ‘Frere Jacques’. We are now working on numbers (reading and writing number words).
The Grade 3 students had fun dressing up, while learning how to greet different people in French. They’ve been learning about some characters (from books, films and television programmes) who are famous in France. They also sang a fun Halloween song, ‘Halloween Ole’. Next, they will be learning how to express an opinion and identify intonation in spoken French.
Our Grade 4 group have been learning the different words for ‘my’ in French and then applied them to create their own family trees. They worked very hard on this! Currently, they are learning colour words and their different genders.
The Grade 5s have been continuing their work on countries and are now learning how to spell the names; we’ve been doing lots of practice on the French alphabet! The students recently learned how to use a bilingual French dictionary and have been looking up different parts of speech in it.
The Grade 6s have been working on the names of places in town and are now learning how to say and write that’ I go….’ (Je vais…) to the various places.
Our Grade 7 students are working on a unit on family. They’ve been talking about their brothers and sisters, and working on adapting a text to give your own details. Recently, they’ve been learning how to describe their own and someone else’s character.
The Grade 8s have been learning about health and fitness. They’ve been studying body parts and and saying how they feel and what is wrong with them. They’ve been using exclamations to sound more French! The students have also been learning to say what is good and bad for your health and how to give basic advice on healthy living.
