Early Level Significant Aspects of Learning Use language in a range of contexts and across learning Develop confidence and enthusiasm to communicate using the language being learnt Begin to develop an awareness of other countries, cultures and languages Listen and join in with simple songs, stories and rhymes Explore and recognise patterns and sounds of language through listening, watching and playing Understand, respond to and say simple greetings and personal information (e.g. name) Repeat and understand simple familiar language from a familiar source Actively take part in simple daily routine language Participate in familiar games including outdoor learning Begin to explore resources to support my learning e.g. picture dictionaries
Vocabulary 1. Greetings Build into daily routines starting with Bonjour and Au revoir and then gradually adding in more vocabulary as learners progress. Bonjour Hello Bonjour Madame!Hello Miss Bonjour Monsieur! Hello Sir Salut!Hi On fait l’appelWe will take the register Fais dodo Go to sleep Bonne nuit Goodnight Au revoirGoodbye
Embedding the language 1.Do the register in French each morning – teacher says, “on fait l’appel” and pupils respond with “bonjour”. 2.Use a Bonjour song and/or an Au revoir song at the start and end of each day. 3.Use Fais dodo and bonne nuit with a French puppet. You can “put him to bed” at the end of a French lesson getting the class to say “Fais dodo + name” and then saying bonne nuit to him instead of goodbye.
Sample activities You will find a bank of sample activities which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom. This is not a prescriptive list of activities and you can use or adapt them to suit the needs of your class. You will find a set of more challenging activities in First Level Greetings.
1.Pupils look at the selection of photos and then decide if they would say this is bonjour or bonne nuit? 2.This can be further extended to create a wall display if doing day and night paintings for example. I have experienced the wonder of looking at the vastness of the sky, and can recognise the sun, moon and stars and link them to daily patterns of life. SCN 0-06a
Bonjour ou bonne nuit? Regardez les photos et décidez si Bonjour! ou Bonne nuit!
Toc, toc, toc! Toc, toc, toc! Is the French equivalent of knock, knock, knock! If you are using a puppet for French, you can keep it in a box with a lid on it (its bed) and ask the pupils to knock on the door to wake him/her up by saying “Toc, toc, toc”. When he “wakes up” they can then say Bonjour! to the puppet. When it’s time for him to go back to bed, they can then say “Fais dodo, au revoir, bonne nuit” etc. If you like you can also add in “reveille-toi” which means wake up.
Activité 3 Bonjour circles Bonjour tout le monde!
Bonjour circles 1.Sitting or standing in a circle, pupils pass around a teddy/toy whilst counting or singing. 2.Whoever the teddy stops on, then has to say Bonjour tout le monde! To the whole group, who should then respond by saying, “bonjour” + the pupil’s name e.g. Bonjour Anna! 3.You can extend this by adding in Au revoir tout le monde and/or asking names when you have covered this.
Songs and videos! You will find a bank of sample songs and videos which you can use to practise the vocabulary in the classroom. This is not a prescriptive list of songs and you can use or adapt them to suit the needs of your class.
