Today, at the beginning of our French lesson, we learnt about La Revolution Industrielle as part of our studies about the history of France.  The workers in that period were paid very little amounts of money and worked in bad conditions.  We also sang a French song that helped us to revise the time, ‘La Chanson Des Squelettes’ and we all enjoyed it a lot!  

After the song we played an intense game of number matching.  The boys won in the end but it was a lot of fun and made everyone use their memory skills in trying to remember the numbers and match the French language to the correct number.  The final scores were ten points for the girls and thirteen points for the boys.  It took a long time to get there though and we were all on the edge of our seats.

We all then joined in singing another traditional French song about a pear tree and a magpie (Y’a Une Pie) before we finished the lesson.  Today’s French lesson was full of songs and activities which we all enjoyed.

Au revoir, Ava.

Firstly, we looked at the industrial revolution - La Revolution Industrielle - as part of our studies on the history of France.  The men that worked in that period were paid very little money and worked in bad conditions.  Next, we sang a French song which we had sung earlier in the year about the time, ‘La Chanson Des Squelettes’.  Everyone enjoyed singing it and doing all the different actions. 

After that we played a game where you had to match numbers and les filles (the girls) et les garcons (the boys) played against each other to see who could gain the most points.  This game made everyone really use their memory skills.  Luka, Theo, Kristian, Kieran, James, Krish, Logan and Rehan won points for the boys and, Jasmyn, Inaya, Hannah, Lily B, Resego and myself won points for the girls.  The girls also got three points extra from Madame Underwood because one or two boys were consulting with each other.  The end score was 10 points for the girls and 13 points for the boys which meant that the boys had won. 

We then sang a traditional French song, ‘Y’a Une Pie’ which had a lot of actions to go with it and which was very long!

At the end of the lesson we all said goodbye after a whole lesson full of songs and activities.

In Year 6 we have been studying French history.  So far we have learnt about: the first people to arrive in France, the Romans, the Vikings, the Gauls and many more people.  We are currently looking at the French Revolution ‘La Revolution Francaise’.  Recently, we have also been revising the authentic French finger rhyme ‘La Tour Eiffel’ about the Eiffel Tower.  

At the beginning of every lesson, a couple of our fellow classmates say the current, previous and future dates in French, which helps us with our French accents.  Madame Underwood is an excellent French teacher and has taught us extremely well - we wouldn’t have come along this far without her.  Thank You Madame.

We have also been practising adverbial phrases of time and place and the simple future tense, for example, le chat tricote aujourd’hui dans la cuisine or la baleine va danser aujourd’hui dans le garage.  

At the end of every lesson we use our traffic light cards which then show Madame how we found the lesson. Green = I understood.  Amber = can we go over this again?  Red = I didn’t understand.  We then say au revoir to Madame Underwood and Monsieur Burke.

Firstly, we started to talk about all the French books that we have read during our time at Davyhulme Primary School. Then we looked at Louis XIV as part of our studies on the history of France.  In class we have looked at: the Romans, the Vikings, the Gauls and the first people to arrive in France. 

After that, Haris read out les defis savoirs.  Numero 1 - Can I read aloud syllables, words and sentences containing the digraphs an et en as in pantalon?  Numero 2 - Can I start to use the simple future tense in French?   Numero 3 - Can I use adverbs of time?  The class then said the date for today, yesterday and tomorrow in French.  We also practised the authentic French finger rhyme ‘La Tour Eiffel’ about the Eiffel Tower.

Next, using our French reading books, we read all the syllables, words and sentences from page 37.  Following that we practised our adverbs of time using animals for the nouns, a verb and an adverb of place.  An example of this was l’elephant tricote aujourd’hui dans la cuisine.  We revised verbs in the infinitive like tricoter, danser, chanter, nager, voler and sauter.  We tried using the future tense - Le chat va danser dans le sac.  We then returned to the learning challenges and showed our traffic light cards.  Most people held up green for numero 1, 2 and 3.  Finally, we said au revoir to Madame Underwood and Monsieur Burke.

The first challenge that we did today was to talk about the different French books that we have read during our time at Davyhulme Primary School.  Madame Underwood asked us several questions in French about the books, for example, which books were our favourites, whether we preferred fiction or non-fiction books and who were our favourite authors.  After that, we learnt about Louis XIV as part of our studies about the history of France.  We learnt that he protected anyone who was educated or important.  We then considered our learning challenges.

We said the date in French for today, yesterday and tomorrow, after which we performed the authentic French finger rhyme ‘La Tour Eiffel’.  We then read from our French reading books, words and syllables containing the digraphs ‘an’ and ‘en’, for example, dent and le vent.

Finally, we practised composing sentences containing adverbial phrases of time and the future tense.  We then assessed our learning by using the red, yellow and green cards.
