In our first lesson back, Preps, Grade 1&2 and Grade 3&4 were learning about les Pâques (Easter) in France.
We practiced saying Joyeuses Pâques (Happy Easter) to each other.
We looked at the different chocolats délicieux that French people eat at Easter.
We listened to a story about how, as well as the Easter bunny, flying cloches (bells) bring chocolates to French children on Easter morning.
How did you celebrate les Pâques? Do you know of any more Easter traditions like the flying cloches?
Grade 5&6 have been drawing and describing monstres. We’ve used number, colour and body part vocabulary to write French sentences about our monstres. We then (messily) made playdough using a French recipe and modelled our monstres. Everyone’s creations were incroyables!
Voilà nos monstres:
Voilà a few example sentences:
Jacob: Il s’appelle Regarder et Crier. Il a six petits yeux rouges.
Chiara : Elle a cheveux rouges et un nez vert. Elle s’appelle grand rouge.
Josh : Il a deux yeux bleus de faiseau de laser. Il a des cheveux du feu.
Jake : Il s’appelle Manticore. Il a deux jambes orange. Il a une petite tête jaune mais sauvage.
What do you think? Do you know how to say monster in any other languages?
