Personal Pronouns rap !

(7)
I usually get my students to repeat the personal pronouns in English and in French to a rhythm (pat pat clap clap) to get them to remember what they are and the order they are in. However my Y8 this year have no sense of rhythm and it was a disaster. One of them, though, said Miss, you should record it. So blame him ! The lyrics are (unsurprisingly) I you he she we you they, Je tu il elle nous vous ils elles The idea is that they listen and then repeat. This is my first attempt at something like this - hope you like it !
