Mr Maillard's Magnificent French

Lundi 25 janvier 2021



For people who have done their French Assessment, we are starting our new unit about fairytales.

If you have not done the French Assessment, you can still find it below. Please do it by Monday 25/01/21 as I have to give my comments for reports. Five tests are still missing!!!


Firstly, it is important you do keep a record of your work in the next few months in French as we will use the vocabulary fairly frequently and will need (whenever we can) to stick them in your French books. I also will need it for assessment for the end of the year (I do both a test and checking the books).


You can start with a powerpoint presentation with a beautiful song. On each page, you will find vocabulary (vocabulaire), questions or comments.

Finally, you can find a worksheet and a few exercises / games.


Bonne chance !

---> Alternatively, you can print the documents, answer on them and take a picture.

In any case, answer in English.
