Use French stories to teach Christmas vocabulary (1)

In Une lettre au Père Noël, the fourth story in Learn French with Luc et Sophie, 2ème Partie, Sophie decides to write a letter to Father Christmas. Luc calls her a baby, but will he get the new football he’s been dreaming of, if he hasn’t written a letter himself?

The story is told via speech bubbles and simple text and is a fabulous way of introducing Christmas vocabulary.


As with all Luc et Sophie stories, there’s a twist at the end. Barbara Scanes, the author, says that she used her own children (who are now in their 20s!) as role models when thinking of what Luc et Sophie would do.

The book can be bought on it’s own, as part of the Year 5/6 Starter Pack or in a class set with all 14 storybooks for Years 5/6.
