Use French stories to teach numbers to 60

In Combien de paquets ?, the seventh story in Learn French with Luc et Sophie, 2ème Partie, Luc brings his cards to school to show to his friends. Sophie wants to join them, but Luc tells her to go away. She pushes the boys and they drop the cards. Will they be able to pick them all up before the end of break?

The story is told via speech bubbles and simple text and is a fabulous way of introducing counting to 60.


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.
