Here is an overview of what the children will be working on this spring half term in French. 

This term the children will…

  • Name and identify a wide range of drinks and ice cream.
  • Use a range of verbs to ask for food politely.
  • Ask for the price of items.
  • Count to 100 first in tens then use tens and units to make up any numbers to 100.
  • Use our knowledge of numbers to deal with prices when buying items.
  • Familiarise themselves with and name a wide range of food items.
  • Express their opinions on food using extended sentences including at least 2 verbs and 2 conjunctions.
  • Identify the vocabulary associated with a menu and a restaurant setting.
  • Ask for a table, the bill and other hospitality related vocabulary.
  • Name and identify cutlery and other food related items.
  • Use the appropriate weights and measure they would need to buy food at a market.

The children in year 6 will be working around the topic of food.  As well as learning a range of food from breakfast to snacks, drinks and meals, they will be practicing ordering from a menu, requesting various drinks and flavours of ice cream and dealing with prices. This will be done through hands on activities, games, role-plays, songs, Q&A, creating menus and using authentic material.

The children will be able to state their own preferences and ask for those of others. They will take part in a practical cooking / tasting session, which will involve discovering the French way around food and the learning of basic ingredients.

 In a grammar point of view, the children will consolidate their use of the ‘negative’ when expressing which food they do not like or there isn’t any of. They will also learn the use of the indefinite articles ‘du’,’de la’ and ‘des’.

Online Safety

Our 5 SMART rules

Whenever we use computers, iPads, tablets or mobile phones, we will be following our 5 SMART rules…


Safe: We are careful and do not give out personal information about yourself or anyone else when chatting or posting online.


Meeting: We know that meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous, so it’s not a good idea. We only meet someone with your parents’ or carer’s permission and even then, only when they are with us. We always remember that online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.


Accepting: We understand that accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems—they may contain viruses or nasty messages!


Reliable: When we chat online, we know it is best to only chat to real world friends and family members. Sometimes, people online might lie about who they are. We always check information found on the internet because it might not be true. We use other websites and books to do this.


Tell: We always tell a parent, carer, trusted adult or phone Childline if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online. We know that we can always report to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) if we are worried about online abuse or the way that someone is chatting online. 


Good to be Green


We are looking forward to celebrating all of our children who follow our 'RICHER' values in our weekly assembly and 'Richer Rainbow' time. We will upload pictures of our exciting activities on here so keep checking the page. 



Foxgloves class will have PE on a Monday morning. Children in Foxgloves can come to school in PE kit on a Monday. Snapdragons will be swimming on a Monday morning. Swimming kits need to be named and in a separate bag. If your child needs to wear goggles, a letter from the parent needs to be signed and sent into the class teacher. 


(Please put names in all kit)


We are extremely lucky to have such wonderful grounds here at River View which we will use during playtimes and lunchtimes. Children will have access to sports and play equipment at breaktimes and lunchtimes to encourage active play. We all know ‘exercise is good for you’, and The Daily Mile is no exception. There are a wide variety of health and wellbeing benefits associated with daily physical activity and an emerging body of evidence supports the positive impact The Daily Mile can have on children’s health which is why we are aiming to complete it regularly throughout the week.

Our School Song - RICHER VALUES

Our Friday Project for this half term was to write, compose and perform a school song. We decided to write our song about our RICHER VALUES here at River View Primary School. Collaboratively, Foxgloves class wrote all of this song and put it together into a full composition. We have all enjoyed perfecting it and performing it to the school.
