Space exploration - in French
This unit transports children into space, developing their scientific vocabulary as well as their grammar. Pupils develop their listening and language detective skills, use figurative language and develop their sentence structure by adding adjectives, using prepositions and making simple adjectival comparisons. Links can be made with English as they use figurative language and write poems, Science and with our KS2 computing unit on space.
