Bonjour Year 6.

 

This week we are continuing to look at special dates on the French calendar. Remember that VE day is not only celebrated in England.  A large part of France was invaded during World War II and taken over by Germany.  The French were our allies.  That means that they worked together with us to help win the war.

 

Just like in England, there were mass celebrations when news spread of Nazi Germany’s surrender.

 

Look at the PowerPoint of these celebrations in Paris below:

 

Paris celebrations Victoire 1945

The 8th of May is a bank holiday every year France. 

 

During the war, there was not a lot of food available. Food was rationed in France too.   People had to think very carefully about how to make food last as long as possible.

Language detectives: 

     

Look at the picture below.   Can you work out what some of it means?

Use those strategies!   Use the picture for clues too!

Economisez le pain.  Coupez le en tranches minces et utilisez toutes les croutes pour les soupes. 

 

Check  how much you understood in the document below.  

 

Pain.mp3

People ate lots of soups during war time as these could be made to last longer. ‘Soupe au pain’ is ‘bread soup’.  Old, dry pieces of bread were put into the soup so as not to go to waste.

 

Below is a recipe for a bread soup with onions.

Can you follow the French instructions?

If you like, ask a grown-up to help you to make it.

(Be safe in the kitchen and check with an adult that the bread isn’t too old!).

Bon appétit!

RE

It's week 3 of our Spirited Art project and it's time to start creating. Look at your plan from last week. At school you would have 2 sessions to create this piece of artwork. Use your time wisely...don't rush it!

 

Think about the order that you do things. Do you need to start with the background...let that dry and then add 3D elements next week?

Only you can answer that question.

 

Good luck and look forward to seeing the results at the end of next week.

(We may ask you to take a photo and upload....watch this space!)
