Elder, Mulberry & Oak


This year the children will be following La Jolie Ronde scheme of work in French. We are starting with a revision of numbers and greetings through the use of rhymes, songs, videos and fun activities. Here the children are practising their counting and using software to check their learning. 









If you would like to join in with the fun and help your child to practise their skills here is a link to one of our number songs. We hope you enjoy it!




The children further extended their knowledge and understanding of French by learning the days of the week, months and seasons and they particularly enjoyed singing our C'est La Semaine song, which is sung to the Adam's Family tune, and this has really helped them to remember the new vocabulary.




We then moved on to colours, using simple painting by numbers activities to reinforce not only the colour vocabulary but numbers too.





This term we have started to learn some vocabulary to introduce our family members.

We learnt how to say "Here is my mother/father etc" - "Voici ma mère/père etc".


To be able to do this the children learnt the different ways of saying "my" in French and added these to their grammar table.

The children regularly have the opportunity to use their Purple Mash skills to practise their current and previous French learning, playing lots of different games and quizzes, which they really enjoy!








Les Animaux

The children have been learning all about animals in French this half term.

They have been extending their knowledge to using the correct word for ‘a/an’ that corresponds to each animal.


They are also really enjoying learning a French version of Old MacDonald – Vieux MacDonald.




Vieux MacDonald a une ferme

A, o, a, o, a

Et en sa ferme il a une vache

A, o, a, o, a

Et moo, moo, moo et moo, moo, moo

Ici moo, là moo

Moo, moo, moo

Vieux MacDonald a une ferme

A, o, a, o, a

They have also been combining their French skills with their computing skills to create Mind Maps of animals in French.
