How old are you & Months of the year French Lesson KS1/2
A lesson plan and resources for teaching children how to respond to the question 'How old are you?' in French and for learning the Months of the Year (linking to age and birthday month)
I used this resource with able KS1 children but would probably work for lower KS2 too.
The lesson takes about an hour (depending on size of group, ability of children and how long you choose to spend on some of the interactive activities.

N.B. This lesson requires some prior knowledge of numbers (I taught this lesson a week or so after teaching my 'Introductions and Numbers' lesson also available for download)

The plan contains 3 sections:
an introduction - circle time activity
main - interactive games, flash card activities and practical group activities
independent activity and goodbye - time to complete independent worksheets and activities and say goodbye.

Resources include:
Flash Cards for display and matching activity (in French and English)
Make your own month clock (two versions blank and illustrated)
Months word search and answers
Writing practice worksheet.
Lesson Plan

The objectives of this lesson are:
By the end of the session most children will:
• Have practiced French greetings and revised numbers
• Be able to answer the question ‘How old are you?’ in French
• Know their birthday month and be learning others.

The planning is fairly flexible you can spend longer on some parts than others, do activities as a whole class or print multiple resources and work as smaller groups - whatever works for your group of children!

I have produced 10 lessons in total covering some of the French basics which you are also able to purchase either individually or as a bundle from my TES shop. Topics include: Introductions and Numbers, Colours, Weather, Age and Months, Farm Animals, Food, In My Pencil Case, Where I Live, Transport, Parts of the Body. All lessons follow a similar pattern and activities.

All the images I use are free to use and distribute with CCO licenses.
