Listening to some French songs on the CD provided.
Song 1 – The French National Anthem ( La Marseillaise).
Songs 2-6 – Traditional French Music
Songs 7-12 – Music from French Speaking Africa and Caribbean
Songs 13-15 – Contemporary French / Belgian Pop & Hip-Hop
On the European Union and BBC Schools websites there are a number of games and video clips split into different categories:-
In the coming weeks, we could continue the theme, with each year group producing a French inspired piece of art. More details will follow, however, here are some ideas:-
- Use the style of art you are focusing on this term to produce pieces of artwork inspired by French monuments and landmarks
- Use the style of a famous French artist such as Monet, Cézanne, Matisse, Gaugin, Magritte etc., to interpret scenes from the local area.
- Re-create some famous pieces of art by French Artists
- Use collage / photography / I.T/ Sculptures from Lego, Clay, Pâpier Maché etc.
