CLUB CLAYGATE RECEPTION
TEACHER CAROLINE MEARES
TERM SUMMER 2018
Our aim is to ensure the children understand and learn to love the culture of France and to gain good
listening and speaking skills. 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 it as much as we do. If you have specific
questions, please see me after the club or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

We started off this half term by looking at la famille (the family) and learnt le père (father), la mere
(mother), frère (brother), soeur (sister), bébé (baby), grand-père (grandfather) and grandmother (grand-

souris (mouse) and le lapin (rabbit).
We finished the half term by learning about la ferme (the farm) and learnt – la vache (cow), le mouton
(sheep), le cochon (pig), la poule (chicken), le cheval (horse) and le canard (duck). Again the children
