French for Year 2 (15th July)
As promised last week, here is the whole conversation for buying an ice cream in France. Some of the flavours are easy to guess but the tricky ones are: 'framboise' = raspberry, 'pistache' = pistacchio (a kind of nut) and 'cassis' = blackcurrant. Try to remember whether to say 'au' or 'à la' in front of the flavour.
Try to practise out loud, choosing different flavours each time.

This is how to buy an ice cream in French in a café.
The first line is the café owner asking what you would like.
The second line is you saying what you would like.
The third line is you asking for the bill. (Remember that 's.v.p.' stands for 's'il vous plaît' which means 'please')
If you practise it out loud, it could sound like a rap, as each line ends with the sound 'ay'.
Once you are happy with how it sounds, you could add 'Bonjour', 'Merci' and 'Au revoir' to make it a proper conversation.
I haven't forgotten to tell you how to say 'ice cream' in French! That is for next week.

Can you find the French names for 9 fruits in this wordsearch? Copy the words carefully into the spaces at the bottom of the sheet.
Can you write in French the number of fruits and the name of the fruit? The first one is done for you - see how they have written 'trois' and not '3'. You will need to remember to put an 's' at the end as they have done in 'poires'.
By the way, the French for a grape is 'un raisin'.

Here is a list of animals in the plural (more than one). Most of them end in 's' but that 's' is silent. The ones in red do not add an 's' but an 'x'. Can you see also that the word for 'the' is in the plural too, and is 'les' which is pronounced 'lay'? Can you work out what these animals are called in English? Remember they are in the plural e.g. cats (with an 's')
Have a look at the worksheet. If there is a smiley face, you start your sentence with <J'aime>. If there is a sad face, you start your sentence with <Je n'aime pas>. Look at the list of plurals and copy the right word to complete your sentences.
At the end of the worksheet, you can choose what to write!
