During the week
- Continue to monitor the water cycle plastic bags during the week and encourage the children to use the correct words in French.
- Look at a more detailed French water cycle for French schoolchildren using the link: ‘USGS: The water cycle for schools – French’. Can the children work out from the images, words and cognates what other more complex processes there are in the water cycle? Use a bilingual dictionary to support this.
