Those of you who know me will know my favourite books to read in French are not translated from English or books the children are familiar with... However there is a place for all books and for World Book Day 2015 I decided to read Elmer as it was a recommended book... and the children have loved it!
I have given each pupil (from Y3 to Y6) a white board and pen and before reading each page gave them something to listen out for or work out, to give them a focus (see word document for suggestions). I also played the attached presentation (powerpoint) to highlight some of the key words. It really has worked a treat and I look forward to using it some more this week... It could be used at any time of the year though of course!!
