Bonjour mes amis! Ça va? It's Madame Avery here.
This term, you are going to be creating a French farm!
I'll be setting you weekly activities so don't forget to check back to find out what you have to do next.
Week 1: Learn the names of some farm animals.
1. Follow the link above which takes you to the French Games website.
2. Click on FULL TUTORIAL All activities.
3. Start the tutorial. Listen to and look at the words and practise saying them out loud like we do in class. You probably need to go through them several times.
4. You can then have a go at the activities Yes or No?, Either/Or and What is it?
5. Don't go any further this week - we'll be playing the Games over the next 2 weeks!
Bonne chance! (Good luck!)
Week 2: Play some games
This week, we're going to play some games to practise the farm animal names you started learning last week.
Week 3: Sing a song
Week 4: Make your own farm
This week, I'd like you to create your own farm with the animals you've been learning the names for in French.
You could use play play-doh, plastic toys if you have them, or you can draw them.
Then, write labels in French for each one, copying the spelling carefully.
Finally, show someone at home your farm and tell them what each animal is called in French.
You could take a photo or make a recording to send to your class teacher.
Amusez-vous! (Have fun!)
Week 5: Write some sentences
In the song from Week 3 you learnt that il y a in French means there is or there are. Here's what I'd like you to do this week.
1. On a sheet of paper put the heading Dans la ferme.
2. Draw your own farm with the farm animals you have been learning.
3. Write some sentences to say which animals are on your farm. For example:
Il y a un mouton. (There is a sheep).
4. Extra challenge: if you have, say, more than one pig, you could write:
Il y a des cochons. (There are some pigs.)
Il y a trois cochons. (There are three pigs.)
5. If you can, email your work to your class teacher.
Week 6: Our last day on the farm
Well done to everyone who has sent in their French work over the last couple of weeks. Your class teachers and I have been delighted with the effort you have put in.
This is our last week on the French farm so I would like you to:
1. Catch up on any of the previous lessons you didn't manage to do.
2. Test yourself to see how much you have learnt!
Go to the French Games website by following the link at the top of this page (On the Farm).
Click on 4. Tests and have a go at the Multiple Choice test.
3. For an extra challenge, take the Writing test.
How did you get on? If you didn't get 10 out of 10 the first time, try again and see if you can better your score.
Bonne chance! (Good luck!)
