YEAR 3 FRENCH
UPDATE 22 juin 2020 : Les sports
Did you know… there are lots of countries in the world where French is spoken – not just France! On this powerpoint you will see some famous French-speaking sportsmen and sportswomen – some are from France and some are from other French-speaking (‘Francophone’) countries. francophone sportspeople
Please use either the internet or other resources you have at home to do some research. We would like to know more about French-speaking countries and famous people (particularly sportspeople) who come from these countries. We would love to see what you come up with! Please send your findings in through Classdojo.
PREVIOUS WORK ON SPORTS
If you cannot access the powerpoint you can still learn the work:
Look at and learn this list of sports :
le foot (football), le rugby (rugby), le badminton (badminton), le basket (basketball), le tennis (tennis), la natation (swimming), la gymnastique (gymnastics), l’équitation (horseriding).
Note that to say we like a sport we use ‘j’aime’, so ‘j’aime le foot’ means ‘I like football’.
To say we don’t like a sport we use ‘je n’aime pas’, so ‘je n’aime pas le rugby’ means ‘I don’t like rugby’.
Try to make up some examples of your own!

Check in next week for some more activities – au revoir!
1) Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6Vm6cxoeug This will revise some of the fruits we have been looking at in French. In case you can’t access the clip the list is:
le citron (lemon), la framboise (rasberry), la fraise (strawberry), la poire (pear), les cerises (cherries), l’orange (orange), le melon (melon), le raisin (grapes), la banane (banana), la pomme (apple) and l’ananas (pineapple).
While watching the clip practise saying the fruits and then when they ask ‘Où est la pomme? point to it. Check if you are correct!
2) Next you could go to www.educandy.com. Enter the code 28fa and play some games with French fruit vocabulary.
3) Why not make up a ‘salade de fruits’ with some of your favourite fruits – either in real life or as a poster? Practise saying the fruits with someone at home.
Please keep on doing the activities we set last week which are below…and remember to share your work through Classdojo to your class teacher so we can see what you have been up to!
UPDATE 11 MAI 2020: Les Fruits
This week we are continuing with FRUITS in French – Les Fruits. You are going to read and listen to a story in French called ‘La chenille qui fait des trous’. You will recognise it as the original story is called ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Don’t worry if you don’t understand it all! Just watch, listen and enjoy. Watch the clip here:
Next, print off this worksheet:’ La Chenille colouring sheet ‘ and colour in the caterpillar, the fruits and the butterfly. Do you recognise the days of the week in French? Can you remember the song we sing to practise the days of the week? Can you remember the colours in French as you colour in?
To practise this vocab you could go to www.educandy.com and enter the code 553e. Start with the match up game, then you can progress to noughts and crosses (with someone else or against the computer) and the memory games.
MEANWHILE, KEEP LOOKING AT THESE LINKS…
The Digital dialects site is great because you will HEAR a native speaker saying the words correctly. Here’s another game:
Please note that in this game they use the alternative word for brown which is ‘brun’; we have been using ‘marron’ up to now. Both are acceptable translations.
Here’s a clip of Trotro (remember him?) playing Hide and Seek with his friend Lili. Watch for fun! Then you can watch more clips by following the links below. Remember there are lots of games and links on this page, including all the educandy games we have practised in class. Amusez-vous bien!
