Bonjour! Bienevenue à Wimboldsley!!

At Wimboldsley Primary School we teach the children French throughout the whole school. 

Spring Term 2017


The children continue to enjoy the adventures of those mischievous kittens "Marvin and Lou Lou". This term we will be learning days of the week, months of the year (including birthdays) counting up to 20 and naming some familiar animals. The children will continue to develop their spoken language through songs and rhymes with surprise visits from Monsieur Claude. 



The children continue to enjoy learning French listening to stories and rhymes, singing songs and action rhymes.  This term they will continue to enjoy the adventures of Berthe the green witch and her petit chat noir. The children will find out what activities Berthe does during the months of of the year. Through these activities they will develop their  knowledge of familiar written words and speaking/ listening skills using everyday classroom language.




This term the topic in French will be "Ca Pousse" linking with the Class Science Topic. The children will learn the names of vegetables grown in the garden and how to say which they like or dislike. They will describe the life cycle of a plant in French and join in with a well known story using French words through role play and storytelling. We will look at markets in french speaking countries to gain a cultural understanding and develop speaking and listening skills through market role play




This term French will link with the Class topic about Water and the Rainforest. The children will learn some French language linking with their RE about Islam and the link with water. We will also be following the adventures of a character called Milo who is searching the tropical rainforest for his cheeky monkey friend Coco. Through these animated stories, catchy songs, and rhymes the children will develop their speaking and listening skills. There may even be a surprise visit from an old friend of Mme Clarke "Freddie" the red eyed tree frog.



This term the topic in French will be Bon appetite bonne santé.  The children will work on their speaking and listening skills talking about different foods and drinks that they might find in a packed lunch. They will express likes and dislikes and discuss which foods are good or bad for their health and follow instructions in a recipe to make their own pizza. 


DONT FORGET - FRENCH is all around us!!

If you are out and about with your children you may see some French language that they recognise. It could be a restaurant name, a shop, an item in a supermarket. If you are able to take a photograph saying where and when they saw this we can paste it into our big book "French is all around us".
