FRENCH- Fishy Goings On by Ms Russell
We have joined forces with the Art Department’s Mrs Kazimoglou, and are developing ideas for One Scotland. In order to tie in with the French Spring festivals, particularly Le Poisson d’Avril, we will look at Places to Visit and Deep Sea World -the first of its kind in Scotland.
In French recently our theme of the Garden for Life has found its way conveniently into our lessons with Ms Russell. We have been finding out all about “des legumes”.
Please see the attached link for details of the new vocabulary we have been learning.
The pupils have been learning some basic French food vocabulary with Mme Russell. The attached link will take you to the words and phrases they have been working on since they came back to school after the summer holidays.
You may wish to practise these at home for fun. All of the pupils enjoy asking for a chocolat chaud…
In French this week, the ELP pupils have been compiling food diaries with Mme Russell. The attached link should help you go over any of the key vocabulary with your child.
In the coming weeks and months you will be able to find out more about the Enhanced Learning Provision French programme…
During the autumn term the pupils will be covering a simple range of French language that are strongly linked in with learning life skills.
*Numbers from 1-10
*Extension (for those able) of numbers from 1-20
*Simple school equipment (eg rubber, pencil, ruler, pen)
*Very simple conversational expressions (eg Bonjour, cava, au revoir, bon soir)
*Parts of the body (eg for eyes, hair, nose, mouth)
There are a lot of repetition and reinforcement activities undertaken – the pace of the lessons has to be such that the children can revisit vocabulary on a continual and regular basis.
