Here is a page of puzzles on school subjects. If you like, you can cover up the Clues section and only take a peep at it if you need to.
Handy hint: In the picture puzzle you will see that a clue to the answer is given by the words <le>, <la> and <l'> when each child starts to tell you what their favourite subject is.

French for Year 6 (27th May)
Here is a French vocabulary challenge.
Look at the eight pictures and, using a ruler and pencil, label one thing in French on each one. Handy hint: a good start would be to name the subject or the place in the school which the picture shows. Then go round again and try to label a second item and a third one and so on. Looking at the last few weeks' work should help.
French for Year 6 (20th May)
Look at the worksheet 'Quelle est ta matière préférée?'. Can you decide which subject each picture is showing? Your five answers must be in French!
Now, using what you have learnt in the last few weeks, can you express your preferences about each of these subjects?
Mrs T would write something like:
J'adore l'espagnol. C'est intéressant, mais difficile.
Now practise saying your sentences out loud, putting the appropriate kind of expression into your voice with some actions if you feel like it.
Remind yourself of the names of the school subjects in French (See the list from 29th April) You might like to play a guessing game of mimes of these subjects.

Bonjour! On the Likes and Dislikes worksheet can you complete the five sentences with the French name of a school subject from the French work you did last week to show your preferences?

(C'est ennuyeux = It's boring - if you say this very slowly, it will help you remember the meaning) Miss out the word 'Oui/Non' at the start of each one as you are not answering a question.
Why not practise reading your sentences out loud, with the right tone of voice? You could even add the preference actions for each one if you can remember them!
