Please Note: We have added a suggested timetable onto our distance learning page for you follow if it helps you to organise your day. You do not have to follow these times – talk to an adult at home to decide what will work best for you. If you are following your own timetable, we have added a time in brackets which is a guideline to show how long each activity might take.

1. Watch the above video in which Tom sorts out toys and clothes he no longer wants and sells them at the local market or vide-grenier. After you have watched the video once, watch it again and try to pronounce the French words that pop up on the screen. Repeat after the person saying them.

You WOULD leave an empty box in between ma and tirelire. Answers for both task 2 and 3 will be published tomorrow.
