We started the autumn term learning greetings:
“Bonjour” (Hello) - “Comment ça va?” (How are you?) - “ça va bien” (I am fine) - “ça va mal” (I am not good) - “ça va comme ci, comme ça” (so so) - Comment t'appelles-tu ? (What's your name) – Je m'appelle .... (My name is).
We introduced words to express how we are feeling: Je suis triste (I am sad), je suis content/contente (I am happy).
We have learnt numbers up to10 and the colours bleu (blue), blanc (white), rouge (red), jaune (yellow) vert (green).

Lessons

We talked about:-

The class mascot: His name is Hugo, he is a snail and is blue, white and red like the french flag.
Il s’appelle Hugo, c’est un escargot. Il est bleu, blanc et rouge comme le drapeau de la France.

The Eiffel Tower, where it is found, city and country. The french currency, the euro.

We learnt a couple of songs :-
“Sur le Pont d’Avignon”(CD No10) and explained where it is located. Introduced new vocabulary -
le pont (bridge), danse (dance), la fille (girl), le garçon (boy).
“Bonjour Madame La Lune” (CD No2) and learned more vocabulary with the song :- la lune (moon), le soleil (sun), les étoiles (stars).

More vocabulary we learned during these first five weeks:-
Au revoir (goodbye), merci (thank you), s’il vous plait (please), combien de (how many), écoutez (listen), levez-vous (stand up), asseyez-vous (sit down).

At the end of each lesson we usually have an activity sheet to reinforce the vocabulary learnt and we make sure every week that we are revising the colours and numbers. We play games to spot the colours in the room, we mime the songs to help memorise the new words and we always ensure that we have the correct pronunciation.
