Nos Poèmes de Pâques

During Holy Week, Key Stage 2 pupils wrote an Easter poem in their French lesson using colours and similes.   

They used bilingual dictionaries to look up words and they had some interesting ideas.

This was also a great opportunity to practise constructing sentences using nouns in French. The children recalled that nouns in French are either of masculine or of feminine gender and that you can use articles (le, la, l’, les, un, une, des) in a number of ways that we don't in English - in English, we would omit them.   

For example:
Violet comme la lavande” - Purple like lavender  

Thank you to Julie Prince and Clare Seccombe for sharing this creative idea and resources via the Languages In Primary Schools group.
