In S1, pupils study a range of topics, including:
– International focus, focusing on francophone countries all over the globe (nationalities, language, jobs, weather, present tense regular verbs (-ER verbs), the verbs “habiter” and “parler”)
– “Wha’s like us”, bringing the focus closer to home and developing the sense of being citizens in a global community. (Physical and character descriptions, stereotypes and their validity, the irregular present tense verbs “avoir and “etre”).
– New Year’s Resolutions, with the onus being on health, hobbies, food and well-being (hopefully the learning lasts longer than the “resolutions”!). (Vocab focus on sports, hobbies, food types, adjectives of health, the irregular present tense verb “faire”).
– Healthy environment and the place where we live (places in town, what you can do in town, extension of hobbies, directions in town, the present tense irregular verb “aller”).
We hope the S1 will thoroughly enjoy the range of activities and learning opportunities in these topics 🙂
