vendredi le six septembre
What a fantastic start to the term. It was lovely seeing all the children again even though their classes have been jumbled up. I am pleased to say that I think the new groups are very well suited as was clear in the wonderful behaviour shown in year 4 this morning. Today we covered the 1st six phrases from our new module "L'école magique." Can your child remember any of the animals and colours from today?
vendredi le treize septembre
This week we have learned six new animal and colour combinations in preparation for our story "L'école magique". Can your children remember some of the new animals from today. Bird is a particularly tricky one due to the spelling - oiseau (wazo). Can your child name you six colours?

We revised animals and colours by playing "guess which flashcard I am holding". I was very impressed by how well the children had remembered all the colours and animals from the last 2 weeks. We also began the L'école magique story and discussed the meaning of each page. Bon travail year 4!

Wow fantastique year 4! You did very well translating the remaining pages of our story today. You also remembered all the animals and colours we have been learning. You also had the chance to show off your maths skills and tell me some sums in French. Bon travail! Really great work today.
vendredi le quatre octobre
We had a musical lesson today, listening to the animals song and filling in the gaps. It was a catchy one so apologies if they are singing it all weekend. The catchy ones work best to help them remember the words. Can your child remember cat/dog/horse or how old the snake was?
Merci year 4. A vendredi.
vendredi l'onze octobre
We had to complete our end of unit assessment today. Luckily these are not too arduous and we like to think of them as quizzes instead! I was delighted to see how well behaved the children were as they do need to sit still (ish) and stay quiet for a long period of time. They showed great listening skills (the hardest of the 4 language skills to master) and concentrated very well. I am very proud of you year 4. Je suis vraiment fière de vous!
vendredi le dix-huit octobre,
Today was more of an administrative day while we collated our assessment results. I am delighted to say that nearly everyone did very well on their end of unit test. Each time we do one, children become less daunted by the experience and it is very good practise for future testing. We did have time to watch 2 videos about children and their pets in France. Can your child remember the names of the budgies? How many poisson rouges did Corentin have? What colour was Sophie the tortoise?
