French Planning for Class 3 (Y5 + 6)
Spring term 1 and 2 – Careers - a 10 week topic learning about work sectors, workplaces and professions, Children will role play careers day, with grammar work concentrating on the verb “être” – “to be” in present and future tense and on feminine and masculine adjectives.
Following children’s interests we can look at depth into some career types, which will give the opportunity to revise some animal (vets) and body parts (medical) vocabulary as well as learning some new.
All years will have the opportunity to do some special day/festival topics over the term with the children (eg. Children’s Mental Health Week). These fun lessons allow us to consolidate vocabulary learnt over the term and find out about different customs in French speaking countries.
Our Year 4, 5 and 6 students have enjoyed many annual, residential trips in locations such as:
- PGL Boreatton Park,
- JCA Condover Hall Activity Centre,
