Chennestone - French - Progress Report

CLUB : Chennestone
TEACHER : Grace Venkatasawmy
TERM : Spring half term (Feb2020)
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 I hope they enjoy as much as I do. If you have any
questions, please send an email to
We have continued working on the days of the week, the months and the seasons. It is
a lot of new vocabulary and each week we have been practicing with the help of
worksheets, word searches and games to reinforce these topics.
We had a session on “La galette des Rois” ( The Kings’ cake) : La galette ( the pastry,
the filling), le roi/la reine - the king and queen, la couronne - the crown, la fève - trinket
inside the galette.
We also worked on actions : Je mange/bois - I eat/drink, je lis - I read, je ris - I laugh, je
pleure - I cry, je danse, je saute - I skip, je dors - I sleep.
I try to make the class very interactive and get the children to practice saying a few
words about themselves - their name, age, where they live, sister’s/brother’s name,
parents’ name, grandparents’ name, likes and dislikes). We will keep expanding on
After half term we will work on “The Mardi Gras Carnival”, “La crêpe” - (the
ingredients, fillings), Mother’s Day, Easter and the weather.
