The Catherine Cheater Scheme of Work
for French (Year 5)

The Scheme of Work comprises:

  • 30 easy to follow and fully adaptable lesson plans with guidance (in Word format)
  • a series of innovative, cross-curricular practice parcels to reinforce language taught
  • useful websites and guide to authentic resources

N.B. The contents of the CD-ROM may be copied for use by the purchasing institution.

Please note that the scheme of work for Year 5 is currently being updated.  The upgrade CD-ROMs should be available in May 2011.  These will include PowerPoint slides with voice recordings and images that can help you to model the language for the children.

In year 5, children…

  • continue to use the vocabulary learnt in years 3 and 4, and they learn new vocabulary consisting of nouns, verbs, adjectives and conjunctions. They develop their use of sentence starters, which still comprise simple adverbial phrases of place, for example dans la cuisine, dans le jardin, dans la piscine. They continue to develop their knowledge of singular and plural concepts and to understand how this can change pronunciation.
  • learn about syntax and make comparison between French and English and other languages they know.
  • can follow a strategic approach to phoneme/grapheme work and have regular practice in developing reading skills by using either Le Manuel Phonique or Methode d’apprendre à lire Pas a Pas. The PowerPoint slides that are an integral part of the scheme of work model the phonemes and show the graphemes.
  • continue to develop pronunciation and fluency when speaking or when reading aloud, and continue to apply knowledge of liaison and elision.
  • use speaking frames and writing frames to create simple and more complex spoken and written sentences, for example
    Dans mon placard je vois un petit lion jaune et une grande araignée bleue.
    Dans le jardin j’entends un petit cochon rouge et une grande libellule verte.
  • Practise reading aloud, or reciting from memory, short passages of text from a book about the universe.
  • Continue to listen to stories and to join in reading aloud, and become familiar with stories known and loved by French children
  • learn about products and symbols from France and make comparisons with products and symbols from the UK
  • listen to and sing along with traditional French and British folk songs and learn and perform French folk dances
  • listen to and sing along with songs by the popular singer Henri Dès
  • become familiar with the works of the painters Gaugin, Manet and Pissarro and the music of the composer Satie
  • become familiar with the town of Vichy and the surrounding volcanic region in France by regularly looking at photographs on PowerPoint slides, and using webcams to make virtual visits
  • practise regular physical fitness routines listening to music such as France Gall.
