Barrow Hedges year 3s - French - Progress Report
BARROW HEDGES – Y3
TEACHER: Francine Hymans
TERM – Summer 1 - 2018/2019
Dear Parents, Carers,
Back from the Spring break, our first topic was “Pâques en France” (Easter in France). We
learned that overall the celebrations were fairly similar in both countries, except for one (big)
detail. It’s not the Easter bunny in charge of bringing chocolates to the children but the Easter
Bells. We practiced the words: oeufs (eggs), chocolat (chocolate), lapin (bunny rabbit). We made
sure we practiced our numbers and colors too.
Our next lesson was dedicated to the World and its landmarks. The children were very pleased
when they realized the vocabulary was easy to remember: les Continents, les Océans, Les
Capitales, l’Europe. We discussed the famous landmarks they knew, such as Big Ben, La Tour
Eiffel, La Statue de la Liberté and they tried to name the continent they belong to.
For our third session, we focused on learning the main expressions needed for a shopping
experience. The greetings, which the children all knew but also being able to say “je voudrais
…… et aussi……/I would like …… and also …….”, “Ça fait combien?/How much is it?”. Using
props, we set up a small stall and pretended to go shopping.
Our last topic was Transports. We discussed how we could go to Paris. “En bateau, en avion, en
voiture, en train, en vélo…” (by boat/by plane/by car/by tarin/ by bike). We talked about how we
could go to London from Carshalton and also what is our favourite mode of Transport.
NEXT HALF TERM, WE WILL COVER:
- Father’s day
- The beach
- Quizz and Games
