We have certainly had a busy first month in our French classes!

Our Kindergarteners been working hard on learning the days of the week and are having plenty of practice writing out the words. They’ve also enjoyed singing a fun song, entitled ‘Les jours de la semaine’.

The Grade 1s are tackling colours. They are currently working on reading and writing colour words and will shortly be singing an interactive song ‘As-tu le bleu?’, involving coloured felt squares. They have begun to use the SmartBoard to play all sorts of interactive games on the topic.

Our Grade 3 students are learning all the different ways that French people use to greet one another, and in our next lesson, they will be using some fun props to practise the key words and phrases.

The Grade 4 students are continuing to work on the theme of “Family”. They have become  familiar with family names and today we sung a French song equivalent to the British song, ‘The Farmer’s in His Den’, in which the students each took the role of the characters and acted out to the music. This was fun!

Our Grade 5 class have learned the names of some countries in French. We sang a catchy tune -‘Je parle francais’- to learn them, and worked out the names of languages too. The students are currently learning the genders of countries.

Grade 6 students are learning some prepositions of place – ‘sur’, ‘sous’, ‘devant’ and ‘derriere’. They drew some very good pictures to demonstrate their understanding of these important words. We will shortly be learning names of places in a town.

The Grade 7 students have recently been working on months and seasons. They learned what French people celebrate and do during the different months. They also practised saying their age and learned how to ask questions, using correct intonation. They are now leaning about pets and how to work out genders of nouns.

Our Grade 8 class will soon be completing their unit on “Clothing”. They’ve been practising how to say and write what they wear for different occasions and in different weather. In our next lesson, they will listen to and act out the first episode of the soap opera, in which we recap all the key language of the first unit of the course.
