Une comptine - introduction to French literature

Une comptine - introduction to French literature

A lesson to introduce literature early in year 7 French (or in primary school if you are adventurous). It is based on a popular authentic French nursery rhyme. Each activity is differentiated. The lesson plan is very explicit but there is room for changes if you want to adapt some of the activities or change them. This is a great way to introduce literature progressively early in KS3 based on the new National Curriculum recommendations. This will also allow an easier transition when literature becomes compulsory at KS4 in MFL in the new specifications. This is the first of a series of resources dedicated to the teaching of authentic literary materials in French.
