New French link project for year 5

Lesson: Languages

Class: Year 5 Miss Devereux Year: 2016 - 2017

Year 5 French class bears Frederic and Fabien have enjoyed their first half term and have had great fun visiting the pupils! Each week one pupil gets to take their class bear home as a reward for making a positive contribution to the French lesson. This half term year 5 have been learning how to say the alphabet in French which they have then used to give coordinates on a map with large numbers. They have been learning the names for different places in town and are beginning to get to grips with giving and following simple directions.

Year 5 classes are embarking on an exciting new project this year as they begin to correspond with pupils in Year 5 at Lacey Green Primary Academy in Wilmslow. This may sound quite simple, but they will only be allowed to communicate using French! So far pupils have introduced themselves to their partners through a short presentation which was filmed by Madame Webb and this week they will be reading a short letter from their pen friends before writing a reply.
