Le Navet Énorme

French

Over their last few French lessons, children in year 4 have been working on a familiar story.

First of all, they looked at pictures of the characters and predicted what the story would be. They guessed correctly - The Enormous Turnip. As a class, we listened to the story, which contains lots of repetition, this helps understanding. We also introduced actions to help us with unfamiliar words.

We all enjoyed pulling the enormous turnip (tire), calling for help (appelle) and showing that, despite a lot of effort, the turnip does not move (ne bouge pas).

Finally, the children have used their knowledge of the story and the new French words they have learnt, to draw a comic strip to describe the story scene by scene.

What a great way to learn a new language. We can't wait to see what our next story will be!
