Les monstres de Grade 5&6

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:

tous les monstres cmpd

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?

Ainsi font font font

Ainsi font font font est une comptine française classique sur les marionnettes. Les Preps et Grade 1&2 aiment la chanter et faire les actions.

Ainsi font font font is a classic French nursery rhyme about puppets. The Preps and Grade 1&2s like singing it and doing the actions.

Journee Francaise le 22 Aout! French Day on the 22 August!

Bonjour tout le monde!

Don’t forget to wear your bleu, blanc et rouge for French Day on Thursday the 22 August. The theme for this day is to celebrate many French themes, including the connection that France has with Africa. We are lucky to have Jali Kuyateh playing the Kora and telling us a little about his instrument, then we will be making Animal masks, learning some African drumming and dances, and practising some French songs and a play.

The morning will culminate at recess when we will enjoy some performances and celebrate our learnings (and perhaps eat some French and African food too!)

Parents  are welcome to help and participate too- we’d love to see you then!

A bientot
