Orchard - Monday - French - Progress Report
Club: The Orchard school
Teachers: Grace Venkatasawmy - Reception
Term: Summer half term (May 2019)
Our aim is to ensure 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 hope they enjoy as much as we do. If you have specific
questions, please see us after the club or send an email to email@example.com
We start the lessons learning/ revising greetings and basic polite words :
“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 is your name),
Je m'appelle .... (My name is), au revoir (goodbye), merci (thank you), please (s’il vous plaît).
The children can now count up to ten.
With the help of songs, games and worksheets/colouring, we gradually introduce new vocabulary
whilst all the time consolidating on previously learnt vocab.
We have worked on :-
Fruits : - pêche (peach), pomme (apple), poire (pear), abricot, orange et banane.
L’arc-en-ciel (rainbow) - we practiced more colours, rouge (red), orange, jaune (yellow), vert(green),
bleu, violet et rose (pink).
Le corps (the body) - tête (head), épaules (shoulders), genoux (knees), pieds (feet), les yeux (eyes), le
nez(nose), la bouche (mouth) et les oreilles (ears).
The children enjoy singing “Petit poisson”, “Polichinelle”, “Pomme de reinette”
For the rest of the term we will start working on “Le petit déjeuner” (breakfast)- croissant, pain au
chocolat, tartine (toast), beurre (butter), le lait (milk), le chocolat chaud (hot chocolate) and how we
are feeling “j’ai faim/soif’ (I am hungry/thirsty) and “j’ai chaud?froid” ( I am hot/cold).
