Beauclerc - French - Progress Report


Our aim is to ensure children understand and learn to love the culture of France and to gain good listening and speaking skills which will hold them in good stead for the rest of their life. We use lively role play, games, bingos, songs and activities to make French culture both enjoyable and memorable.
It is a pleasure to teach your children and I hope they enjoy the lessons as much as I do. If you have specific questions, please see me after the club or send an email to

For the first five weeks we have been learning and practising previously learnt words and sentences including Comment t’appelles-tu? (What are you called?) Quel âge as-tu? (How old are you?) Comment ça va? (How are you?) and numbers 1 to 30. We held a general warm-up session after the Easter holidays, playing our favourite games to revise familiar themes such as numbers, colours, animals, fruit, vegetables and transport.
‘Les vêtements’ (Clothes) le short (shorts), le t-shirt, le pull (jumper), le pantalon (trousers), la jupe (skirt), la robe (dress), le chapeau (hat), le manteaux (coat), les chaussures (shoes).
Je mets (I put on,) J’enlève (I take off), Je porte (I am wearing)
‘Les Animaux se déguisent’ (animals in disguise)
La vache (cow), la poule (hen), le cheval (horse), l’âne (donkey), trop petit (too small), trop grand (too big), triste (sad), content (happy)
The children loved hearing a funny story about farm animals dressing up in the clothes put out on the washing line. It had a very funny ending. They were able to match up farm animal and clothing vocab and we played games to practice this, mixing up different combinations to hilarious effect.
Eg. Le cheval porte un pantalon, (the horse is wearing trousers) L’âne porte une culotte (the donkey is wearing pants)
Le jus de fruit (Fruit Juice)
We used familiar fruit vocabulary to build up types of fruit juice that we could buy in a café.
Eg.Le jus de pomme (apple juice), le jus d’orange (orange juice), le jus de raisin (grape juice). The children learnt about euros and practiced buying different types of fruit juice of their choosing.
Je voudrais un jus de citron, s’il vous plâit. C’est combien ? (I’d like a lemon juice please. How much is it?) C’est un euro (It costs one euro) Merci! (Thank you!)
Songs: Une araignée sur le plancher (no.21), Le vieux Jo (no. 22), Pomme de reinette (no.35)
These can be found in the French Club booklet and on the CD your children have brought home.

Weather, shopping, holidays, summer time and Father’s Day. We will continue to review and build on the topics covered this term.
