French - Talking about art & giving your opinion

French - Talking about art & giving your opinion

Use this whole lesson to teach pupils how to give their opinion about different works of art. The PPT slides slowly guide pupils through giving their opinion and finally, pupils write a short paragraph, giving their opinion about the different works studied.

French - Give the paintings a name

French - Give the paintings a name

The idea of this activity is for the pupils to give the four French paintings their own titles. It’s amazing what they come up with! I would advise you give them dictionaries. Ideal as a starter for a dictionary skills lesson.

French - Describe the painting

French - Describe the painting

Using Monet's painting, 'Jardin à Sainte-Adresse' and example sentences underneath the painting, pupils have to change one word (if it’s a noun, they can change le/la) to make a sentence of their own. This activity focuses in particular on colours and agreements.

Brussels comic strip mural / Bruxelles parcours BD

Brussels comic strip mural / Bruxelles parcours BD

I believe that reading comic books from francophone countries (in English or French) is a major cultural point. The Brussel comic strip mural walk is amazing but sadly not everyone has the chance to go there. This website offers your students the possibility to check that famous city walk through an interactive map.

Primary French Day with sport, cookery, art and Paris architecture, KS1 KS2

If you have been tasked to plan a French Day in school but don't know where to start then this is for you. There are 4 sessions which will last at least an hour each. The information pack tells you how to deliver each session. There's a petanque session (you will need at least 4 petanque sets but I've found these cheap at 'The Works' bookshop, a cookery session (madeleines and salade nicoise, madeleine trays available for just £2 on amazon), and art session all about Monet and Toulouse Lautrec, with a different art activity for classes from Reception to Y6 to do and a French session which will could be led by the teacher organising the day but doesn't have to be. There's an evaluation sheet for children to give you feedback at the end and a letter to parents that you can adapt as you see fit. There is a timetable for the day in the info. pack you would only need change the times to suit your school. I have spent about 3 days pulling these resources together and will be using them in three of the schools where I am employed permanently as a French teacher. This literally is all you will need.

FRANCE FACTS (1)

FRANCE FACTS (1)

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING FRANCE - 20 FASCINATING FACTS CARDS ABOUT ALL THINGS FRENCH - WITH PRESENTATION / DISCUSSION & DIFFERENTIATED WRITING ACTIVITIES This resource really does help to create a lively language learning environment, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional, teacher-led ’information about France’ lessons. Children can develop their knowledge of FRANCE - and through guided whole-group discussion - their home/host country too, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, in part independently of the teacher. There is a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling, and is a great way of aligning language learning with developing literacy skills in English. This resource comprises the following:20 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: GEOGRAPHY, COUNTRY, LANDMARKS, LANGUAGE and FOOD. There are four cards per A4 sheet, making them the perfect size for young learners. The language on each of the cards ranges from fairly basic to more advanced, which challenges and enhances children’s English skills. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL 1 - there are 2 options: either 2 or 4 fact recording boxes per A4 page. Children read their selected facts, and copy the information in the boxes. Encourage children to be as accurate as possible with their spelling and punctuation, to pay particular attention to the spelling and accents of the FRENCH words that are included, and of course to make sure they are recording the facts in their best handwriting. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL 2 - there are also 2 options: 2 or 4 fact recording boxes in this challenge level. However, there is a more open-ended task: responding to the question “What did you learn?”. This requires children to read their fact card, process the information, and then recreate it in their own words, describing the fact in the context of what they have learned. WHOLE-GROUP PRESENTATION/DISCUSSION ACTIVITY, with every fact included in the presentation resource - I’ve found this a really useful means of encouraging and stimulating classroom discussion. Children can reflect on what they already know about FRANCE, and share it with their peers. Use the facts themselves to prompt discussion about the home/host country, eg “What is our capital city? Is it also our largest city?”, which really does create a successful cross-curricular learning environment. SETS 1 & 2 with 40 facts which also include ART & ARTISTS, HISTORY and FAMOUS PEOPLE are also available as a combined pack at the special price of £5.00: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/france-facts-activities-11700399 This pack comprises 5 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the pack is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEACOUP ET BON VOYAGE!
