Summer Half-Term break at home… doesn’t sound very exciting, even more so for your little ones! Don’t panic, we have selected loads of fun online activities and ideas to help them learn and practise French!
It’s not all about watching videos and sitting in front of a screen either – we hope that our selection will inspire you and your children to try new things: grow your own veg or test a new recipe…

During the confinement, Jamy from the TV science education show “C’est pas sorcier” (It’s No Sorcery, French for “it’s not rocket science”), has launched his Youtube Channel! He answers questions such as “Why cats don’t like water?”, “Why days are getting longer?” & one of our favourite “Why the Swiss Cheese has holes?”.

Did you watch our French teachers’ video? If not, you can see it on our Youtube channel. We are all missing you so much that we wanted to send you a special message, and share with you what we like to do at home.
À vous ! And now it’s your turn! Follow the video (text & movement) and show us “en français” your favourite lockdown activity.
We would be SO happy to see what you are up to and hear you speak French. Can’t wait to see your videos!
Email your video at: firstname.lastname@example.org – We may ask you if we can share your video on our social media. However, if you would rather not, it will be watched by the teachers only!
We hope to see you soon in one of our lessons online!
