A message for the Alfie inside you: 

Today is your chance to pour out your heart and hatred for Miss Root after all she did embarrass you in front of the school! I’m sure inside you your blood is boiling with rage and questioning whether it is okay to cry.  

Writing in your diary will be a powerful way to share your emotions as I know you won’t want to worry your father! Keeping all your worries and upsets inside you isn’t healthy...let them out...share!  



Look back at your sequencing of events you did on Friday and the note planning you made on Monday! 

Remember to write your diary as though you are Alfie. 

There is a Writing Sentence Support document below which is there to help those who aren’t quite sure what to write. It has suggestive ways to begin sentences and bullet points which give your ideas on how to expand your sentences or write another!  


Read/Listen to Chapter 5 Demon Dentist!  



This term, you are going to be learning the names of different animals and some descriptive words and phrases linked to animals.


Play the music Le Carnaval des Animaux by Camille Saint-Saens. Saint-Saens was a French composer who was 

born in Paris in 1835. This piece of music is very famous and is made up of 14 movements (different sections of music), each one representing a different animal. What animals do you think of while you listen to the music? C'est fantastique? C'est nul?


Look at the 'Additional Flashcards' section of the Core Language resources (near the bottom). Are there any French animal names you already recognise? Read the words carefully and focus on pronunciation. YouTube has some excellent tutorials so you are likely to find native French speakers providing animal names with correct pronunciation to help you.


Charades d'animaux (Animal Charades) - agree a mime/action for each animal. Person A calls out a French animal name and Person B mimes. Swap. If you want, take freeze frame pictures and add them to your Home Learning Book with French animal name labels.


Hangman - Person A writes the first letter of each animal word on a piece of paper. Person B has to guess the rest of the letters OR say the animal name in French with correct pronunciation.


Throughout this unit, use your Core Language resource OFTEN. These are key words and phrases you are aiming to learn, say and understand over the course of the term.
