In Year 1, we practised colour recognition by playing matching pairs.
In Year 5/6, we used our problem solving skills to order a conversation in French. Despite finding this quite tricky, the children used their Stonebow Learning Power of Perseverance. Bravo!
Our current topic in Lower KS2 is 'Au cafe'. We have been using our knowledge of French numbers to 30 to understand and say prices in French.
To end our topic, we used our knowledge to create short conversations set in a cafe.

Year 2 have been practising the alphabet in French. We hope that you enjoy the song that we have been using to help us to pronounce the letters correctly.
We have made name signs for our bedroom doors, showing how to sound out our name in French.
To fit in with our current cafe topic, the children remaining in school during the Year 3/4 residential were invited to 'Cafe Allenby'. Here, they were served by a glamorous waitress (Mrs Allenby!) and were offered a choice of pains au chocolat, brioches au chocolat, orange juice or apple juice which they had to order in French.
Everyone agreed that the treats were 'delicieux'. Strangely, when I suggested bring in some snails and frog legs for 'next time'. they didn't seem quite so keen!
In Year 3 and 4 we have been developing our spoken confidence to introduce ourselves in French.
We have also been working on our written skills and have composed an introduction to ourselves in French, giving information about our name, age, birthday, animals, brothers and sisters and favourite colour. Take a look at some of our fantastic work below.
We have been getting very bossy in Year 2! We have been learning instructional phrases in French, using an appropriate action to help us to remember our new vocabulary. Please take a look at our videos!
Well done to Bethan and Isla in Miss Walshs' class for working so hard in their own time to produce a French booklet each!!
Children in Year One have nearly completed their first half term of French. We have been working on greetings and have learnt a song to help us to remember the phrases that we have been using in class. We hope that you enjoy watching us!
During Year 5/6 Wellbeing week we created and labelled healthy and unhealthy lunch boxes in French.
Year Two have been learning the French alphabet and practising a catchy song to help them to remember each letter. We hope you enjoy it!
Year One are enjoying their first half-term of French and are making fantastic progress. We have been working on greetings and have learnt a catchy song to help us to remember our new vocabulary. We have also been practising conversations in French using our own hand-made puppets.
To begin our topic about the body in Upper KS2 this term we focussed on vocabulary to name parts of the face, using our knowledge of French phonics to pronounce the words correctly. We then had lots of fun labelling each other in French.
Summer Term 2017
To complete our work on the French alphabet this half-term, we recorded the song that we have been using to help us to remember the letter sounds.
We hope that you enjoy it!
Spring Term 2017
Children in Year 2 have really enjoyed getting bossy this half-term, using imperative verbs to give instructions in French. We used an action for each instruction to help us to remember it.
Autumn Term 2016
Five children from Year 5 have been chosen to attend three Language Taster Days taking place across the year at the Loughborough Grammar School. Over the three days Bronwyn, Freya, Charlotte, Isobel and Martha will get a 'taste' of six different languages and will sample foods from the relevant countries. The first day went brilliantly, all of the girls had a great time, the food on offer being a particular highlight!
