Reading - in reading we have been analysing a poem called ‘The Worst Team’ which is about a group of children who love football, but are not great at winning. We discussed how they don’t mind because they have lots of fun! With the use of role play, we pretended we were part of the team and we had just lost yet another game! We showed that we didn’t mind because we still had fun with our teammates.

French - in this lesson, we were welcomed to the Louvre Museum. We focused on the ée sound ay and discussed the words l’entrée (the entrance) and le musée (the museum). We used the idea of cognates and near cognates to help us discover other vocabulary around the museum. 🇫🇷

Music - we are super excited for Young Voices next week! 🎵🎶
