How to Help at Home:
- 1. Take your child to a museum
France has produced some highly talented and well- known artists, such as Monet and Renoir.
- Celebrate French holidays
Celebrating important French holidays, such as Bastille Day (14th July) will teach your child about French history. You could make some fun crafts or take part in holiday traditions.
- Cook a French meal
Introduce your child to French cuisine by having him or her help you to make a traditional French dish such as crêpes or quiche.
- Watch a French movie
Host a French movie night with your family. Here are some child-friendly French movies:“A Monster in Paris,’’ and “Tintin and the Lake of Sharks.”
- Listen to French music
Download some French songs to listen to while at home or on the road. Listening to French music will help your child to become familiar with French accents and pronunciations.
- Memory game
Create some French flashcards and place them face down on a table. Your child will turn over two cards. If the pictures match, your child will flip over two more cards. The aim of the game is to match all of the cards from memory.
- Read French books
There are lots of beginner French books available online including comics like Tintin or Astérix - www.little-linguist.co.uk. There are also a variety of French books in the Guiseley Primary School library on loan for free!
