During the week
- During the register call, instead of the children’s normal response, ask the children to tell you in French what fruit snack they have in their lunch box today (they can make it up)
- Use the new vocabulary to create Five-a-day healthy eating posters for the classroom (Mangez cinq par jour – Eat five a day)
- Look at paintings of still life by French artist Paul Cézanne and ask the children to describe which fruits can be seen. They can try their own art in this style, and could develop this with dictionaries for new vocabulary. See ‘Art & Design, KS2, Year 6, Still life, Lesson 4: Still life in colour’).
- Look at the painting by Archimboldo and see how many fruits the children can identify. They can try their own art in this style as well (see ‘Art & Design, KS2, Year 4, Sculpture, Lesson 3: Arcimboldo’).
- Make or invent fruit smoothies using fruit from the lesson and (see ‘Design & Technology, Food: Fruit and vegetables, Lesson 4: Making smoothies”).
