Pupils should be taught to:
- Broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material

- Write simple words and phrases using a model and some words from memory (L 4.4)
- Recognise and apply simple agreements, singular and plural (Yr4 KAL)
- Play Le pendu again.
- Play the ‘Spelling die’ game in pairs:
Each child has a piece of paper with numbers 1-6 written on it. They write an item of clothing, in English, next to each number.
The children take it in turns to roll the die, and whatever number comes up indicates the word on that child’s list that they must try and spell from memory in French. Their partner checks the spelling, using a dictionary if necessary. If the word is correctly spelled, the word can be crossed off the list. It is then the other child’s turn. Rolling a number that has already been rolled where the spelling was correct means the child misses a go. The winner is the first player to cross off all their words.
