Bonjour Year 2


We hope you have had a nice weekend. Well done on your spelling test last week, we loved hearing about your fantastic efforts. 


Are you ready to go around the world again?! This week we are carrying on learning about different countries. We will be getting hot in sunny Spain and chilly in the frozen Arctic. Today we are in France! We can't wait to hear which country you have found most interesting to find things out about. 


Miss Procter & Mrs Nie

Frère Jacques

Today’s song is Frère Jaques and it is a nursery rhyme from France. You can sing it in a round which means you sing the first line and then the next person joins in (see the video). 

The song is about a friar or monk who has overslept and is woken up to sound the bell for the matins, the midnight or very early morning prayers that the monks took part in. 

Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques,
Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines! Sonnez les matines!
Ding, dang, dong. Ding, dang, dong.

Frère Jacques
