Years 7 and 9 are both studying the topic of school and have been set the task of adding a comment to the Mon école WALLWISHER belwo. Do you have a comment about schoo that you would like to share with my class too?
What with all the snow - this little starter will definitely warm you up!
Year 10 will listen to the audio of CENDRILLON and run to the front of the room when they hear the next phrase. Once the activity is completed, we will have a look at the sentences in a bit more detail as they recycle much of the vocab and grammatical structures we have been looking at lately. There is the added challenge of pronouncing the text correctly thinking in particular about liasons, -in, silent letters and the "ll" sound.
CENDRILLON – run for the phrase activity.
Focus on modal verbs (devoir), “ll” sound, silent letters (inc –ent) and negatives.
Les filles de la reine ne font rien
Cendrillon doit faire la lessive
Cendrillon ne peux pas aller à la fête.
Elle n’a pas de beaux vêtements.
Il estsix heures: Cendrillon entre dans le château.
Il estneuf heures: Cendrillon boit.
“Il est tard, je dois rentrer.”
“Je vais retrouver cette mystérieuse jeune fille.”
Year 9 will be starting a new topic on Tuesday. They will be presented with the WORDLE cloud below and asked to work in pairs and try to a. work out the new topic and b. categorise the words into as many different types as possible. We will also discuss why some words are larger than others.
Attached is a file from MFL Sunderland which is the original text from which the WORDLE was formed. We will use this in order to complete the sorting exercise (also attached).
Finally so that pupils have a record of some of the new vocabulary, we will complete a cascade activity where each pupil shares 2 new words from the lesson with a partner and then snowballs their 2 words around the room to make 4, then 8, then 16 and so on. Hi lighter pens will be available so that pupils can colour code their vocabulary according to gender / type of word.
I'll report back on how we get on :) Madame Bewell
