Week 1: A Selection of Home Learning activities

______________________________________________________________________

 

French learning from Madame Lawson

 

Babelzone (username and password both 'bromet') which contains loads of stuff - games, stories, phonics, songs, plus activities to print out such as wordsearches, puzzles, crosswords, etc. It is all topic based and the children can choose between French or Spanish.

https://www.lcfclubs.com/babelzoneNEW/

 

Another good resource is BBC Bitesize. If the children search BBC BITESIZE FRENCH KS1 or KS2 then loads of topic work comes up: numbers, culture, places in town, food and drink, school, daily routine, hobbies, travel, weather, our planet and birds, bugs and beasts. There is also a section devoted to stories, poems and songs.

Song Words for our class assembly song

 

With tuppence for paper and strings,
You can have your own set of wings.
With your feet on the ground
You’re a bird in flight,
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite


Oh,

Let’s go fly a kite,
Up to the highest height!
Let’s go fly a kite
And send it soaring.
Up through the atmosphere,
Up where the air is clear,
Oh let’s go fly a kite.
