French KS2: A French song about masculine and feminine body parts
A lively song to help pupils practise parts of the body, focusing on masculine and feminine.
This song will help children to think about the concept of gender in the French language.
This clip is from the series Virtually There: France.
A good listening activity could be to ask pupils to listen out for the correct definite article ie le or la.
Pupils then write le on one side of a mini-whiteboard and la on the other.
Every time they hear a masculine/feminine noun in the song, they hold up le or la. Label 3 sides of a large foam dice with la and the remaining with le.
These clips could be used for teaching French at KS2 or at a beginner level in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 1st and 2nd Level in Scotland.
