It is so lovely to see our new year 6 children. My, how they have grown up over the summer! This week we started our new module "Un concours de sport". We revised parts of the body and learned some new and tricky phrases describing sports and circus related activities. How many different parts of the body can they remember? Can they remember cycling? - the word velodrome was given as an example to help them remember it.

Today we started our picture story "Le concours de sport." We discussed the meaning of all the words and I was very impressed how well the children translated each page. They are getting better and better at coping with longer, more complicated texts. Bon travail year 6!

What an exciting day for BHJS today! The rain did not manage to spoil our fun or learning, despite a lengthy power cut. We went the old fashioned way and got out the mini whiteboards and did some general revision on giving personal information followed by an exciting game of 5s. Children had to write a list of 5 words depending on the category. Can your child remember some of the words they used in the game?

Today we had to complete our end of unit assessment. The year 6s are very well versed in doing these now. The assessments are a great way to revise all the words we have covered in the earlier weeks. It is also good practise for future testing. Behaviour expectations are slightly different in an exam environment and I am happy to say that almost all of the year group managed to sit silently and sensibly throughout the duration of the test. Well done year 6.
mardi le premier octobre,
Today we finished off the story about the school sports contest. I am delighted to see how comfortable most of year 6 are reading French words out loud and translating the words on each page. I am noticing that I am gradually able to give them less help along the way which is very encouraging. Can they tell you some of the different activities the characters did in order to win? 6N and 6H were lucky enough to witness my own juggling skills! Can your child have a go at juggling over the weekend?

Today we watched 3 videos about children doing exercise in France. We listened to children giving out instructions in French using the 3rd person plural (vous) command form. We then followed their instructions and did the warm up ourselves. It's always a good idea to stand up and be active at some point during our lessons. We learned the verbs respirez/relachez/mettez/tournez/ pliez/descendez. The third video explained the rules of petanque/boules which many of the children already knew how to play or had seen people playing in France. Can they tell you the rules of the game?
