‘Be The Best You Can Be’

MFL with Mrs Livesey!

MFL: KS2 French - Radio Labo - BBC Teach


Bonjour everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and well at home.

French Star of the Week: This week I'd like to say a massive well done to Jaidon in Year 4 for making such a fantastic effort to complete all the French work on his class page. I regularly receive emails showing me the brilliant work he is doing and am super impressed. Keep up the good work Jaidon!

Some French work will be posted from time to time on your year group pages, but I thought it would be nice to set some little French challenges that you can all have a go at regardless of what year group you are in.

There is now a special MFL email address where you can send any pictures of work/videos you do straight to me: . I can't wait to see what you're doing at home!

Some of the challenges I set here will involve singing a song, reciting a poem or presenting information. So if you have something you can film yourself on and would like to send me a video, please do! Make sure you get your parents' permission before using any devices and make sure they give consent to email your video. If you would also like to use the challenges to practice your French writing, then please take photographs of your work and send that in too. 

Pen Pal Opportunity!

Do You Remember… Pen-Pals | Midlife Crisis Hawai`i

As many of you know, some children at Moston Lane have had the opportunity in the past to write to pupils in France to practice their French skills. This week, I have been in touch with Miss Peyral and we had an idea to offer you the chance to exchange emails with her pupils to share your experience of learning at home during lockdown. Children in France are in the exact same situation that you are - schools are closed and they are doing their best to stay at home and protect people. Why not ask them to tell you what it's like for them and explain what it has been like for you?


If you are interested in getting involved in this, please email me at the email address above and I will help get you started. You can write in English, French or a mixture of both, whatever you feel most comfortable doing! I will then pass on your email to your pen pal to ensure that no personal information is shared - we have to remember to stay safe when working online.


I hope to hear from some of you soon and until then, continue to be our stay at home heroes. Mrs Livesey x 


Pen pal progress!
Over the last few weeks, letters and photographs have started to come in from children in our school and from pupils in France. It has made me so happy to help you exchange these letters via email, and to be able to read about some of the things you have been doing at home. I have been SO impressed at the effort our Moston Lane children have put into writing their letters, both in English and in French, and just had to share a few of them here. Google translate appears to have been a big help and that's absolutely fine - this is more about making a new friend than being fluent in French! A huge well done to Freddie in Year 5 and his little sister Lucy in Year 1, Caitlin, Wisdom and Alex in Year 4 and Alfie in Year 3 for working so hard on your letters. Rest assured that if you have not received a reply yet, I will send it to you as soon as I receive it. Please keep your letters coming, and if anyone else is interested in getting involved there is still time because more and more pupils in France want to do it too. If you want a pen pal, we will find you one!
The most recent letters have come in from Jaidon and Kyra in Year 4, and Nelson in Year 3. Nelson has actually written two letters to his pen pal already - fantastic work Nelson! Have a look at their brilliant letters here:

Salut Zakarya

 Je m'appelle Kyra. J'habite à Moston, Manchester, Angleterre. J'ai 8 ans. J'ai un frère aîné appelé Kian qui a 13 ans. J'ai une tortue de compagnie appelée Trevor. Je ne suis pas allée à l'école depuis le 23 mars à cause du coronavirus et mes amis et mes professeurs me manquent.

Qu'avez-vous fait pendant la quarantaine? As-tu des hobbys?

Super bavardage avec vous.

 de Kyra

De Jaidon
Jaidon's mum told me that he had a great time using Google to help him write his letter, and had a little giggle to himself as he tried to pronounce all the new words he had learnt in French! This really made me smile and is what this is all about - having fun whilst learning something new, and making a new friend a long the way. A huge well done to you all!


Challenge 12

On écrit sur les murs

Positive Messages in Graffiti - paint on our fingers

For our final challenge, we're going to do something a bit different. I think we can all agree that it has been a very strange year and we're now all trying to be positive about the way forwards. With this is mind, I want you to watch the following video of a French song called 'On écrit sur les murs' - a song sung by children with a message of the hopes they have for the future.

Below you will find the words of the chorus in both French and English. Read these as you listen to the song and think about their meaning.

On écrit sur les murs le nom de ceux qu'on aime
Des messages pour les jours à venir
On écrit sur les murs à l'encre de nos veines
On dessine tout ce que l'on voudrait dire
On écrit sur les murs la force de nos rêves
Nos espoirs en forme de graffiti
On écrit sur les murs pour que l'amour se lève
Un beau jour sur le monde endormi

We write on the walls the name of those we love

Messages for the days to come

We write on the walls with the ink of our veins

We draw everything we'd like to say

We write on the walls the strength of our dreams

Our hope shaped in graffiti

We write on the walls for love to rise up

One beautiful day on the sleeping world

Now have a look at the power point below. Choose one of the words that appear in the song (scroll down and translation is provided) and draw a graffiti style poster that displays a positive message - it might be hope, health, love, unity - whatever you feel is most important for you and the future of our world. Take a look at some of the examples of work in the power point if you need some inspiration! Please take a photograph of your poster and email it to me so that I can put it up on our very own display in September.

I can't wait to see all your fantastic work and hope you have a wonderful summer holiday. Bonne chance!
