Barrow Hedges year 2s - French- Report


Barrow Hedges year 2s - French - Progress Report

TEACHER: Francine Hymans
TERM – Spring 1- 2018/2019
Dear Parents, Carers,
Topic wise, 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 “la fève” 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
while we played a game and practiced our numbers with a dice and a paper galette.
To stay within the same topic, our next session focused on the people who lived (or live) 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”. We also watched a short video of famous French castles and the children noticed the
many different type of castles we can find in France.
Being in February, Winter was the following topic. The children worked hard on their worksheet to
dress “un bonhomme de neige” (snowman). A perfect opportunity to revise the main vocabulary
for clothes and remember how to say I wear “Je porte”.
Our last topic was around Valentine’s day. We mentioned the heart “le Coeur” being the symbol
of love but also what people give each other on that day: “des chocolats, des bonbons, une carte,
des fleurs” (chocolates, sweets, cards, flowers).

how to make pancakes and what are the main ingredients needed. We will then learned
about Spring and Insects. We will also revisit the vocabulary learned previously.
