Languages Club - Summer Term 1 - 17th May 2023

To help broaden our knowledge of French and other languages around the world, a group of 9 children have spent 6 weeks exploring languages through Duolingo for Schools. After spending 3 weeks of Language Club exploring deeper into French, the children were given the opportunity to select another language they would also like to learn.

Before the end of our 6 weeks, we held an interclass competition between classes Orange, Blue and Gold. Mr Rainbird led the competition providing the introduction, questions and ending in French. A range of questions were selected from a variety of topics. We hope you enjoy our recording.

Easter-themed activities

This week Green, Orange, Blue and Gold Class have been doing some special Easter-themed activities and creating some lovely pieces of work. 

Green Class decorated Easter eggs and labelled the colours in French. 

Orange Class read a description in French of an Easter basket, then drew the picture to match. 

Blue Class and Gold Class followed a story about an Easter egg hunt, learnt some French prepositions then completed a 'Lire et Dessiner' (read and draw) task involving some lovely art work. 

Below is a selection of work from each class - Bravo tout le monde! (Well done everyone!)

Festive French Activities

In Key Stage 2 this week we have done some special lessons for the end of term. 

In Gold Class, we looked at the lanterns of light, thought about 'a light in the darkness' at this time of the year, and explored some French words to describe feelings we have when we look at the lantern. The children created their own, describing in French what they could find inside their lantern... 

In Green Class, we looked at the French Nativity video and created French Nativity scenes by matching the pictures to their names in French. 

In Blue Class, we created multilingual bauble designs, and even learned how to say 'Merry Christmas' in Romanian! 

Have a look at the slide show below to see a selection of the children's work:

Year Three have been consolidating their French learning of colours, numbers, days of the week and months of the year to create these lovely one week advent calendars.

Year Four created their Multilingual Merry Christmas Triaramas. Mr Rainbird even taught us how to say Merry Christmas in Japanese, and two children taught us the greeting in Romanian. Here is a selection of a few of their triaramas.
