Quel temps fait-il 2?

Last week Mrs McDowall gave us homework to make a dice with weather on it. We had to bring it in today. We got into pairs and rolled the dice, then one person asked the question "Quel temps fait-il?" Our partner had to look at the dice and answered in French with the actions. We weren't very good at saying the weather so Mrs McDowall told us to go and play and listening game to help us learn the words. We had to repeat everything we heard. You can try it out
here. Then, we tried the dice game again - this time we were much better!

Next we learnt how to say the seasons - l'hiver is winter, le printemps is spring, l'étè is summer and l'automne is autumn.

Last of all, Mrs McDowall let us use Roller to practise all the things we have learned so far.

15/3/07 French

Today Mrs McDowall had to go away so we had French with Mrs McCluskey. First we practised the weather and we showed Mrs McCluskey the actions. She thought that our action for snow should be like snowflakes falling but we prefer to throw snowballs!
Next we went on to tout-le-monde and heard an interactive story about a boy who builds a snowman and it comes to life. We understood everything that was happening even though it was all in French.
After that we went on to an Australian website and played activity 1 and 2. One of the games was pelmainism when we had to match the pairs with the picture of the weather and the writing. The other game was also about matching but this time we had to drag the words into the speech bubble.
Finally, we went on to Kirklandneuk's blog and answered their weather questions.
Our homework this week is to colour in and make the weather dice that Mrs Mcdowall gave us. We are going to use it in a game next week!

Quel temps fait-il?

Le temps - The weather

We had to finish off our assessments today. We found the time one trickier than the one about days of the week and months of the year.

Mrs McDowall let us mark each others and we used the interactive whiteboard to show the correct times. We didn't all get it right first time!

Next, we began to learn some of the phrases for the weather. We made up some actions for each. Can you guess which phrases we are miming in the photographs? CLUE: We only used these phrases:
Il y a du vent, il gèle, il fait beau, il fait mauvais et il fait froid.

Today's French

Today we did a test on the days of the week and the months of the year. Our assesment sheet meant we had to write them down and spell them right so Mrs McDowall put the words on the white board for us to check. We then discussed the answers with Mrs McDowall and we had to spell them to her in French. Some of us needed to practise our alphabet so, at the end, we revised our French alphabet on the computer. Before that we went on to and played a French game where we had to spell out the time shown on the clock. Twenty past was hard because some of us forgot that it was Il and just did two ls!
