YEAR 6 FRENCH – AN OVERVIEW
Below you will find links to work done in class and to resources that can help you with your French. This year we are focusing on phonics and grammar as well as various topics which include:
Months, seasons and weather; the geographical features of France; saying where you come from; languages and nationalities; talking about the town where you live; festivals in France and the UK. We are also looking more closely at French grammar in the summer term.
