    Week 2

    Le Petit Déjeuner


    Here is a link to this week's exciting French lesson about what a typical French family might have for breakfast:  If you are asked for a password, it is: thrupp


    Once you have listened to this, your next steps are:


    • This week's French song, is supplied once again by Alain le Lait (Buzzards, we will be sharing our breakfast dances when we get back, so get practising!):    


    • Listen to these YouTube clips.  You won't understand everything but listen out for any breakfast words. It is good for you to hear how real French people sound when they speak French.  Listen to how the words sound: This one is a bit longer (6 mins) so Buzzards might just want to watch a couple of minutes or so to get a flavour of what is being said. The interviewers ask different people in Rueil-Malmaison (which is a suburb in the west of Paris) what they usually have for breakfast.  There are subtitles which help.  I thought this clip is interesting as you can hear the different French voices, see some French people and to have a look at what a typical French town looks like.  Is it different from Stroud - how?


    • This is a link to some games which will help you learn your breakfast vocabulary (without even trying!).  On the right hand side, there is a column which has 'Switch template' 'INTERACTIVES' written at the top.  Underneath are a number of different games, with more if you click on 'show all'.  Have a play on these for 5 minutes each day - try a different one each day:


    • It is tricky in lockdown, but if at all possible, see if you can have a family French breakfast one day and enjoy some of these French treats.  If you can't, don't worry, I'm sure Mrs Mylechreest won't take much persuading to let us have our own café breakfast at school one day when things get back to normal!


    • Finally, there is the task sheet attached below.


    Have fun - I look forward to seeing what you get up to... don't forget to email any work, photos, videos or questions to me at


    Bon appétit!
