Tuesday 23rd February (Mardi 23 Février) – French

 

  

 

WALA: the months and seasons of the year (les mois et les saisons de l’année)

 

Today were going to recap the months of the year and which seasons they belong to. 

 

 Begin by learning the 4 seasons using this clip

 

Make sure you learn them by ecoutez (listen) et répétez (repeat).

 

Look at the months document in resources. Copy them out neatly and learn the pronunciations using this teaching clip. You may want to sing along to this song as well 😊.

 

Hopefully you can remember the vocabulary about the weather from the previous lesson. To help you there is a Power point/PDF to be found in the resources with the vocabulary to help you. Now you are going to put all of this knowledge together to hold a conversation (in French of course!).

 

Challenge 1

You are going to practise the response to this question:

Question: Quand est votre anniversaire? (When is your birthday?)

 

You will reply like this (if your birthday was in July):

Reply: Été, juillet, il pleut normalement (summer, July, it is normally raining). 

 

To do this, learn the season, month and likely weather for your birthday. You could use the poster you made a few weeks ago to help you. 

Find a family members and ask them to ask you (in French if possible) so you can practise your reply.

Remember, to help with your pronunciation Google Translate is always useful.

 

Challenge 2:

Do challenge 1 first. 

Think of a friend or a member of your family. Find out when their birthday is and work out what theire respose to the question might be.Try at least 10 different people and write all of the vocabulary down (in French of course!)

 

Practise asking other friends and family (you may have to give them the answer unless they speak French, or get them to ask you!). 

 

Au revoir et avoir une grande jour née!
