Having restarted with an outstanding rendition of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ at their Carol Concert in December, it’s back to learning French for everyone this term (after an enjoyable and interesting introduction to Germany and the German language for most of the autumn term).
So far, the Year 5s have successfully been reviewing and developing their previous knowledge of French language topics such as numbers, dates, greetings and weather. They have particularly enjoyed being introduced to some of the Loony Toon characters and been tasked with translating their self-introductions from English to French. Bugs Bunny (in French) and Sylvester, Tweety Pie and Daffy Duck (in English) all introduced themselves, stating their ages, birthdays, habitat, country, family members and favourite sports. Of course, Daffy Duck ‘aime le karate’, but who knew that Tweety Pie ‘habite en Espagne et aime le netball et le cricket’?
