mercredi quatorze juillet

Bonjour tout le monde smiley

 

Last week were were looking at animals from around the world and you were learning new vocabulary for names and their gender.

This week, we are looking at the continents from which the animals come from.

De quel continent viennent-ils? (Which continent are they from?)

 

De quel continent viennent-ils? Which continent are they from? 

Le lion est de l’Afrique. The lion is from Africa. 

Le zèbre est de l’Afrique. The zebra is from Africa.

After you have learned how to say which continent the animals are from, You will be replacing the noun with a pronouns.

The pronouns you will be using are il and elle masculine and feminine forms of it, depending on the gender of the noun. 

The majority of these animals are masculine.

 

There is also a matching game for you to have a go at. wink

Bon chance mes enfants heart

 

 

mercredi sept juillet

Bonjour tout le monde wink

We have been looking at the countries and continents around the world in French over the last few weeks. This week, we are looking at the different animals that live all over the world. Many of these we can only see if we visit a zoo.

The majority of animal names are masculine in French eg.

un lion = a lion

un ours polaire = a polar bear

un jaguar = a jaguar

The only feminine animal you will meet today is;

une baleine = a whale

Watch the PowerPoint and complete the Activity sheet

Bon Chance yes

Les Continents

mercredi le premier juillet

Bonjour tout le monde laugh

 

Today we will be looking at the continents of the world in French.

Do you remember the fact, from a few weeks ago, that all continents are feminine in French?

                         Les Continents = The Continents

 

                 Combien y-a-t-il de continents? = How many continents are there?

 

                    Iy a sept continents. =  There are seven continents.

 

To say a country is in a continent, in French we say 'en'.

As they are all feminine, this does not change.

For example;

              La France est en Europe. = France is in Europe.

 

If the name of the country is plural, we say sont en rather than est en

For example;

         Les États-Unis d'Amérique sont en Amérique du Nord

 

mercredi vingt-quatre juin

Bonjour mes amis!

 

Last week you were learning about some of the different countries in the world where French was the official language.

 

Can you remember how many countries there were?

Can you remember which continent had the most French speaking countries?

 

This week we are looking at the equator- the imaginary line that runs around the middle of the earth, equal distance from the Artic and the Antartic. 

 

You will be using a bilingual French/English dictionary or online translator to find out the names of countries in French and an Atlas to locate countries.

 

You will be revisiting some vocabulary you have already learned;

        au nord = north

        au sud = south

        sur = on 

 

Watch the Powerpoint and then have a go at one of the activity sheets. I have added a standard challenge and a more challenging one.

Bon chance! laugh

Le Monde Francophone Nous Parlons Francais!

mercredi dix-sept juin

Bonjour encore tout le monde! smiley

French is the main language spoken in many countries around the world. In fact, it is the official language of 29 countries other than France!

 

This week we will be looking at some of them and learning which countries are feminine nouns and which are masculine nouns.

 

On parle français = they speak French.

On parle français en France = They speak French in France.

 

If a country is feminine, then you say en

If a country is masculine, then you say au

If a country is an island, then you say à

 

 

mercredi dix juin

Bonjour mes amis!

Did you enjoy finding street names in Paris on Google maps?

 

Now you know how to say your address, we are going to look at where we are in the world. A geography lesson in French wink

 

We will be looking at the countries that make up the United Kingdom and the vocabulary for this in French. We now say we live in The British Isles but they still call us The United Kingdom in France.

Le Royaume-Uni the United Kingdom

Did you know;

  • there are 29 countries in the world where French is the official language? The vast majority of these are in Africa.
  • there are approximately 74 million people in the world whose first language is French?
  • all continent names in French are feminine nouns?

mercredi trois juin

Bienvenue tout le monde!

 

I hope you all had a wonderful half-term break in the lovely sunshine.

 

This week we are looking at how to ask someone where they live and how to answer. I would like you to have a go at using Google maps if you can to explore the streets of Paris, looking at houses and their addresses.

Remember, in French all  possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, their) agree with the noun not the gender of the person speaking. House is feminine so it is 'ma maison' (my house) no matter who is saying it. As address is masculine, it is 'mon adresse' (my address) and 'ton adresse' (your address).

 

Do have fun investigating French streets and drawing me a French home.

Week 5 - La Journee Scholaire The School Day

Bonjour!

This week we are looking at a school timetable, which lessons are on which day and at what time.

 

Your focus is to use the words avant (before) and après (after) in your sentences.

Eg. Le dessin est après l'anglais.

Art is after English.

 

There are two activity sheets; one is more challenging than the other.  

**Please note that la journée has an acute accent over the first e but I could not add this in the titles.**

You can print it out, type onto the document or write the sentences in a book if you are using one.

 

Bon Chance

Bonjour mes amis,

I hope you are enjoying your home learning tasks and especially your daily workouts. We want you to still have fun, even while we are all apart. 

I will add a PowerPoint to help you with your French whenever possible and written activities. However, it is important to continue to focus on the speaking as well as the writing. 

Any problems, just log onto Google Translate or ask if your parents have a French dictionary.

I am currently trying to set up passwords for you to access some French interactive games which you should be able to access from home.

Remember, you don't have to wait for Wednesday to speak French. Use it daily where possible.

Ça va? Trés bien merci and Bonjour! or Salut! All those lovely greatings you have learned!

 

Bon chance,

Madame Afford
