French News

Bonjour every one and welcome back from "les vacances". I hope that you enjoyed your time away. The Year 1s have been learning about the weather and are now becoming very proficient at explaining if it is a hot or cold day. They have been completing group activities with lots of weather vocabulary. One of their favourites is to match the correct phrase to the weather flash card. As you can see in the photo, there are many different pictures of weather and the boys need to figure out which description goes with which picture. Another activity they have played in class is to pass around three items as we count to 10. When the counting stops, whoever has the item in their hands has to tell the group the special weather phrase associated with it. Whether it is "il fait froid" for the scarf, "il fait chaud" for the hat or "il fait beau" for the ball. We've all been working hard at pronunciation for these lovely French weather words. If your son is in Year 1, why not ask him to tell you what kind of weather we're having today? Au revoir.
