This term, Year 5 are enjoying learning how to introduce and describe their pets in French. During the unit, the children have had the opportunity to speak, listen to, read and write words and phrases that enable them to say what pets they have or don’t have and their pet’s name. This block builds on previous vocabulary and phrases that the classes learnt in Years 3 and 4. As part of our French work, the children are able to familiarize themselves with a French/English dictionary. This week, both classes used the dictionary to identify if the words for pets are masculine or feminine nouns. The children have learnt that this is related to the sound of the word and how it flows in French. The classes worked very hard on this task and were pleased to demonstrate their understanding of the bilingual dictionary. Bien fait!
