Trotts Hill Primary School and Nursery

French

Phrase of the Fortnight

 

Every two weeks, the Year 6 Creative Crew members choose a new "Phrase of the Fortnight" which they share with each class from 
Year 1 to Year 6. 

This fortnight's phrase is:

 

Je voudrais... which means: I would like...

 

 

Intent

The 2013 National Curriculum for Modern Foreign Languages aims to ensure that all children:

  • Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
  • Are able to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and that they are continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
  • Can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.
  • Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

 

Trotts Hill teaches a high quality languages education which fosters children’s curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. It also helps children develop skills that will open further opportunities later in life. The teaching of French in KS1 and KS2 provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further foreign language teaching at KS3.

At Trotts Hill, children have the opportunity to develop their French language skills as well as learn about French culture and traditions.

Home Learning Opportunities

 

Here are some ideas to keep up with your French and build your vocabulary:

 

Watch these videos from High Five French: https://radiolingua.com/learnathome/#primaryfrench

 

Learn the Rainbow Song and revise your colours in French. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZWN2Uragvc

For an alternative song about colours, listen to this one by Alain le Lait - it's rather unusual! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4kNeFGBAcw

 

Write une carte postale - write a postcard in French. You could say what your name is, how old you are, something you like and say goodbye. Maybe you could send it to a friend.

 

Visit the Musée d'Orsay in Paris from the comfort of your home. Take a virtual tour. https://artsandculture.google.com/partner/musee-dorsay-paris?hl=en  You could try doing your own drawing or painting inspired by one of the pieces in the gallery.

 

If you would like to share pictures of your work, please email admin@trottshill.herts.sch.uk

 

I would love to see what you get up to!
