Watch this video of Ben chatting to his French friends about what they like to do:– Tu aime faire quoi? (what do you like to do?)


Try adding to your labelled family picture what everyone likes to do, for example:

Mon pére aime lire (my father likes to read), ma mére aime nager (my mother likes to swim), mon ami(e) aime jouer de la guitar (my friend likes to play guitar), ma soeur aime ecouter de la musique (my sister likes to listen to music), mon frére aime faire du velo (my brother likes cycling), mes cousins / cousines aiment faire dessiner (my cousins like to drawing), ma grandmére  aime jouer du piano(my grandma likes playing the piano), mon grandpére aime danser (my grandpa likes to dance).

Try practising saying some of the phrases used in the video at home.

In class last week, we have been learning the names of different polygons (closed shapes with straight sides) and talking about their properties such as regular/irregular, parallel sides, the angles they have and the number of sides and vertices.  We played a game called ‘Name that shape’ on Friday. Please play the game again at home with one of your family members. You will need two dice or if you only have 1, you can roll it twice to make the grid references. If you don’t have a dice, I have uploaded a template for one in the Home Learning folder. If you like, try one of the variations on the game sheet, such as making the number of sides your score and try keeping a running total. The winner could be the first person to reach 50!
