Barrow Hedges year 1s - French - Progress Report
BARROW HEDGES - Y1
TEACHER: Francine Hymans
TERM – Spring 1- 2017/2018
We’ve started the new half term by covering the French tradition of “La Galette des Rois”, a special cake the French eat to celebrate the Epiphany/the visit of the 3 kings to baby Jesus. The children really enjoyed learning about it, especially the fact a little porcelain/china figurine is hidden in the cake and whoever finds it, will be crown King or Queen for the day. It was fun pretending we were all “Rois” (Kings) et “Reines”’ (Queens) with our paper crowns.
To stay within the same topic, our next session focused on the people who were living in castles “chateaux”. We mentioned les Rois, les Reines of course, but also les Princes, les Princesses, les Chevaliers (knights) and what they were wearing, crowns “couronnes”, armours “armures.
For the next two sessions we worked on Body parts. We’ve started with the face, trying to name “Les yeux” (eyes), “le nez” (nose), “la bouche” (mouth), “les oreilles” (ears) then moved on to the rest of the body.
For our last session, we have started to discuss the vocabulary for clothes. The children were pleased to know that a t-shirt is “un tee-shirt” in French and “shorts” are “un short”. They thought French was easy!
Bonjour les amis, comment ça va?
FOR THE REST OF THE TERM WE WILL COVER:
