Junior students attend French classes 2-3 times per week (depending on A day/B day calendar); postings will appear bi-weekly.

All students require a 1 inch binder, 3-5 dividers and a pencil and eraser for French class.  A resource tool, The Keys to French (Clés de Français), is provided to all grade 4 students (and/or students new to our school).  This one-time gift reference tool can be used through to grade 10.  If your child should lose it, a second copy may be purchased for $6.00 from me.
Students are encouraged to keep all reference materials from year to year (use the same binder and add to your tool kit each year - it's environmentally friendly and a great way to do summer review).

Students will benefit from 10-15 minutes of play daily on one of the French game links!


Joyeux Noël à tous!!

We have been learning how to follow the rules of a board game and how to play a game while speaking French.  We are learning how to identify the rules, the object and the pieces necessary to create/play board games.
This unit has been a lot of fun; we will end the unit with the final versions of our self-created games before Xmas break.


16/11/14 - 16/11/26
We are finishing our unit on "Les Animaux Compagnies" by doing a short, guided presentation with our "marionnettes" that we made in class.  We will follow this unit with a short unit studying time and seasons.

16/10/17 - 16/10/31
We have begun a new unit of study "Les Animaux Compagnies" (Pets) which will overlap with a short Halloween theme. Simple, whole group/shared reading and writing activities allow us to share and demonstrate understanding.

5e Mme. Lassaline:

Following our short unit on seasons (including Advent), we are working on the concept of time - How to tell time in French.  We are learning how to ask the time/tell the time while exploring the concepts of time increments.  We will be making "horloges" in class and the use of these "clocks" will demonstrate student understanding.

16/11/14 - 16/11/26
Unfortunately we were unable to begin our unit on Franco-Ontariens; we will return to this unit later in the year.  Our Hallowe'en and "Jour de Souvenir" (Remembrance Day) units are now completed.  We will continue with a unit which addresses time and seasons.  A short, guided, modeled presentation is part of this unit to be completed by the end of the month.  Students successfully completed their 2 week stint of opening routines and classroom chores (in French); all part of building our community.

16/10/17 - 16/10/31
Over the next two weeks, we will apply our knowledge of "purposeful questioning" to engage in oral communication and Shared/Group Reading activities as we explore the themes of "Franco-Ontariens" and Halloween.
Bînomes (Pairs) of students will lead opening routines.  Équipes (Teams) will participate in the school opening routines for the next two weeks.

5e/6e Mme. Kennedy:

Following our short unit on seasons (including Advent), we are working on the concept of time - How to tell time in French.  We are learning how to ask the time/tell the time while exploring the concepts of time increments.  We will be making "horloges" in class and the use of these "clocks" will demonstrate student understanding. As well, we are learning how to identify, understand and use verbs and adjectives (grammar tricks); introduction to passé composé formation and use.

16/11/14 - 16/11/26
Due to a variety of needs within the school, we have not begun our unit on "Franco-Ontarien" - we will return to this unit later in the year. We did complete studies around the themes of Hallowe'en and "Jour du Souvenir" (Remembrance Day).  We will be working on a unit which addresses time and seasons (it will include the formation and use of specific verbs and tenses, i.e. être au présent et au passé).

16/10/17 - 16/10/31
We are focussing on the application of our knowledge regarding the variety of methods to ask questions and engage in meaningful simple conversations. We continue to learn about the 6 basic French verbs (
avoid, être, aller, faire, pouvoir, vouloir) in the present and passé composé (this is a continual study).  These verbs are covered in the resource tool "Keys to French".  Exploration of "Franco-Ontarien" culture will overlap with a short Halloween theme.
