French (years 3 and 4)

Bonjour et bienvenue!
 
What are we learning in French this half term?
 
In French this half term we will be linking our learning to PSHE and last term’s Science. We will be learning all about ourselves and the language used for body parts and clothing that we wear. 

We will revise colours and months of the year so that the children are able to describe themselves and then talk about what they like and don’t like, when their birthday is and when others in their house have birthdays. 

What French activities are on the homework menu?
 

All about me


Draw and label yourself and your family. Ensure that you include the colours they are wearing and your pets. 

Around the picture write facts eg. age, things you like, colours and when your birthday is.
