Our topic this week is...

France

 

Last week we found out all about Great Britain and the countries that are in Great Britain. We live in the country England. This week we are going to find out all about a country called France. We are going think about these questions:

  • Where is France and how could we get there?
  • What language do they speak in France?
  • What interesting things are there to see in France?
  • What is the weather like in France?
  • What food do they eat in France?

Friday 3rd July

Today we would like you to complete your art activity if you haven’t done it yet. The details are at the top of the page. Don’t forget to send us some pictures!

Maths

Today we are going to continue to learn to tell the time.

Grown-ups: Talk to your child about different times of the day that you do things at (try to stick to o’clock times).

What time do you get up in the morning?

What time do you have breakfast?

What time do you go to school?

What time do you have lunch?

What time do you finish school?

What time do you have tea?

What time do you go to bed?

 

Watch this video again to help you read some o’clock times:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIxaxnageTo

 

Now look at the clocks below, can you read the o’clock times?

Reading

We only have 3 weeks left until the summer holidays. It is very important that you are doing a reading activity every day. This can be done in different ways:

  • Ask a grown-up to read a story to you and then retell the story to them.
  • Read a story on the Oxford Owl website. You should try to read at least 3 books every week.
  • Practise reading phase 2, 3 and 4 tricky words. (You can watch these on ‘YouTube’ by searching tricky word songs). Your grown-up could make you flashcards with the tricky word on.
  • Phonics games on espresso or phonics play.

 

Please choose a reading activity to do today.

 

Writing/Phonics

Today we are going to learn the sound ‘ch’. First watch the video on espresso:

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/video/item82431/grade1/module61932/index.html?source=search-all-all-all-all&source-keywords=ch

Now make a list of words with the ‘ch’ sound in.

Today’s Question:

  • What food do they eat in France?

In France, they eat lots of food that is similar to the food that we eat in England. There are some foods that come from France that you may have tried. For example, you may have tried a croissant for your breakfast. Croissants are a French food. Click on the links below to find out what other food is from France. Have you tried any of these foods? Maybe your grown-up will let you try some of these foods this week.

Writing

Mrs Kidd has a nephew called James that lives in France. We would like to send some letters to James to help us find out more about France. For your writing activity today, please write a letter to James and ask him a question that you would like to find out about France. Send a picture of your letter to us and we will send them to James.

Here is an example of a letter:

 

Moston Lane Primary School

Moston

M9 4HH

 

Bonjour James

 

My name is Mrs Rycroft. I live in England. I would like to find out more about France.

What is your school like?

Have you ever been up the Eiffel Tower?

What is the weather like where you live?

What football team do your support in France?

 

From Mrs Rycroft

 

Remember to:

Say your sentence to your grown-up.

Sound out each word carefully.

Write the letters down in sequence.

Put a finger space between each word.

Put a full stop at the end of your sentence.

 

Maths

Today we are going to start learning to tell the time. It is important to learn to tell the time so that we know when it is time to get up; when it is time to go to school; when it is time to go to bed and many other key parts of our day.

 

 

First of all have a look at a clock face or a watch with your grown-up. Look at:

  • The numbers going around the clock from 1-12.
  • The long hand (this is the minute hand).
  • The short hand (this is the hour hand).

Now we are going to learn to read o’clock times. When it is an o’clock time the long minute hand points to the 12 at the top of the clock. The short hour hand tells us what o’clock time it is.

Watch this video to help you read some o’clock times:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIxaxnageTo

Grown-ups: When your child has watched the video once, watch it again and pause the video on different times for your child to read the o’clock time.

 

Reading

We only have 3 weeks left until the summer holidays. It is very important that you are doing a reading activity every day. This can be done in different ways:

  • Ask a grown-up to read a story to you and then retell the story to them.

  • Phonics games on espresso or phonics play.

 

Please choose a reading activity to do today.

Today’s Question:

  • What language do they speak in France?

There are lots of different languages that are spoken in the world. In England we speak English. Some children in our class speak other languages at home and are learning to speak English while they are in school with us.

In France they speak the language French. Today we are going to learn some French. Let’s start with some greetings:

Hello – Bonjour

Goodbye – Au revoir

How are you? – Ca-va?

This video will help you to pronounce the words correctly:

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/modules/t2_allez/video_greetings/index.html

 

Now let’s watch this episode of ‘Peppa Pig’. The episode is in French!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s63adSjywus

Did you still understand what was happening in the episode even though they weren’t speaking in English?

 

Maths

Today we are learning to count to 10 in French. The videos below will help you learn to count in French. Practise repeating the words. You might just want to start by counting to 5. When you get good at it, practise counting out some objects in French.

Writing

For today’s writing activity we would like you to practise writing some tricky words. Remember, tricky words are words that we cannot sound out. We need to remember how to spell them. It might help to watch the tricky word songs on ‘YouTube’ first.

Start with the phase 2 words, if you find them easy, try phase 3 and maybe even phase 4.

Phase 2: no, go, I, the, to, into

Phase 3: he, she, we, me, be, was, you, are, her, all, they, are, my

Phase 4: said, have, like, so, do, some, come, little, one, were, there, what, went, out

Today’s Questions:

  • Where is France?
  • How could we travel to France?

Have a look at the maps below. The first map is a map of the whole world. Click on the map to make it bigger. See if your grown-up can help you find Great Britain and France on the world map. The map next to it shows Great Britain and France closer up. Have a look at this as well.

If you wanted to visit France, we would need to cross the ‘English Channel’. This is the water in between England and France. How do you think we could travel to France?

 Watch this video on espresso about how different families travelled to Paris. Paris is the capital city of France.

 https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/modules/t1_passport/france/video.html

 Can you remember the 3 different ways that the families travelled to France?

 

Writing

If you were going on holiday to France, how would you like to travel there? Draw a picture of the transport that you would choose and write a label.

Challenge: Write a sentence about how you would travel to France.

 

Maths

This is the French flag:

It has the colours blue, white and red. We could make a pattern with these colours:

Pattern A: O O O O O O O O O

Pattern B: O O O O O O O O O O O O

Can you make your own repeating pattern using 2 or 3 colours. You might have objects to make your pattern with such as beads or counters. You could use felt tips or crayons to draw your pattern.

 

You could also try this ‘Top Marks’ maths game. You need to complete the shape and colour patterns:
