Le monstre a faim- The hungry monster

Le monstre a faim

Sue Cave, one of the authors of Physical French Phonics, has produced a teaching video that shows how to write and make a little storybook, based on The Hungry Caterpillar.

Sue uses the Physical French Phonics system to teach the pronunciation of the words. Children who have been learning French at primary school for a year will enjoy completing this project but anyone can have a go! We know many pupils are already familiar with the Physical French Phonics system and will recognise the artwork but by watching and using this video any child can follow the story and create their own book.

This is a step-by-step lesson for primary age learners of French and is for independent learning. It leads to a creative writing project of a mini-book based on the ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. It will revise days of the week and the plural form of nouns. It includes the teaching of phonics, grammar and dictionary skills.

You will find the video via this link:
