What’s going on G5 French novice 2?


We have just finished our unit on time and transportation. We looked at the 24 hours clock and the 12 hours x 2 clock: It was challenging but fun!

Next unit, we are going to study animals, the way to describe them physically and with their behavior. And we have animal’s lover in the classroom so that should keep their interest high.

Back to School Night Presentation

Bonjour Classe 5!

Bonjour !

My name is Ms. Claire and I am your child’s French teacher this academic year. 

This is a Novice 2 class with children who were together in a Novice 1 or Novice 2 group last year at UNIS. Our fifth graders are already very confident reusing previously taught knowledge and they are keen on learning more this year!

During these first weeks, we are learning to learn, which means that we are consolidating a strong set of skills that will help us communicate in basic situations in French only.

Our learning intentions are:

  • Students will be able to introduce themselves and greet others.
  • Students will be able to count from 0 to 60.
  • Students will be able to say the date the way French people do.
  • Students will be able to understand our class essential agreements using the PYP learner profile.
  • Students will be able to say what people do using action verbs ending in ER  in the french class.

Your child comes to French class on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Once we start our first unit, we will use Vitamine 2 textbook and notebook (Cle International) throughout the year to support our progression.

Welcome to World Languages Blog

Dear Parents,
Welcome to our World Languages learning community! We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our team and share about how to use this blog to enhance our partnership to support students’ learning.

In our team, we have 3 Vietnamese teachers, 3 French teachers, 1 Chinese Mandarin teacher and 1 Teaching Assistant. All languages teachers are native speakers. More information of individual teacher’s bio can be found in the tab of “About Us” on this blog.

During the first two weeks of school, all of our World Languages classes are focused on Learning to Learn. Students are getting to know their teachers and their new classmates. In order to achieve the school goal towards Excellent Learning, in our classes, we established the class essential agreements and commitments to the actions of being a responsible learner of their own and for others. In the meantime, some basic classroom language is introduced so that students will be able to follow the directions in the target languages in everyday situation.

On the World Languages Blog this year, you will find the curriculum information, language learning information from respective teacher, and it also provides you the opportunity to talk with the children about what we are learning, what we have learned, and what we will learn throughout the year.

We hope you will find this site a useful communication channel between our team and you as parents.
