Year 5 Weather

March 23rd, 2017

Well done to 5M. I was really impressed with the weather reports.  You were able to use your knowledge of types of weather and places in France to give a short weather report. Here is an example of a report given;


Je m’appelle …

Aujourd’hui c’est mardi vingt et un mars.

A Paris il fait beau. A Calais il pleut. Au nord il y a du vent.
