The Year 6 children very much enjoyed their French activities during Take One Picture week. They had a group ‘song and dance’ out on the courts relating to knights going into battle. They adapted a well-known French battle song (‘La bataille de Reichshoffen’) to relate it to ‘La bataille de San Romano’ (our Take One Picture painting), adding actions for various parts of the body as they progressed through the verses. You will be able to see their language production and amusing antics on film in our exhibition next week.
The Year 6s are also currently practising some French language relating to house and home. Having been introduced to vocabulary for places and rooms around the house, they attempted to translate some paragraphs about a girl’s ideal home. They are going to go on to prepare a second letter to their French penpals which will include a description of their own homes. They will also add messages to Easter cards and send them off to France - Joyeuses Pâques!
