Les Fruits


This week’s French blog is going to focus on fruits. When we are learning French words we like to practice them in lots of different ways. Here are some ideas for practicing 4 key fruits.

Try listening to this song to help get you started.



We like to use real objects when learning new words. First we are going to practice listening to the names of the fruits spoken in French. Listen carefully as each word is spoken.


Why not join us and make a fruit kebab? Can you find the correct fruit as it is spoken then thread it onto your kebab?


Now practice saying the words as you choose the fruits to make your own kebabs.


Once you have made your kebab you could draw or make a picture showing it. Here are some pictures which you could print if you have access to a printer.

Why not try writing the words in French like this …


If you haven’t got these fruits at home perhaps you could use any fruits you do have – here are some of the other fruit names in French.


If you don’t have any fruit or don’t like fruit you could always draw or make a picture showing a fruit kebab and practice saying and/or writing the words.

We hope you have enjoyed learning some French fruit names. Please comment below to let us know if you made a kebab or email pictures to chestnut@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk.

Bienvenue du personnel de MFL!

Welcome from the MFL team!

All of our KS2 classes enjoy learning French. We listen to and learn some words in French and, as we learn more, we might join these into simple sentences.

We start with words like “Bonjour” and “Au revoir”.

Here is a little song to help with these words.


We also enjoy learning about France as a country and the culture of France.

In Paris, the capital city of France, there is a big tall tower … does anyone know what this is called?

That’s right the Eiffel Tower.

Have you visited the Eiffel Tower? If you have we’d love to see some photos.

Did you know …

  • The Eiffel Tower was originally built as the entrance arch for the World’s Fair in 1889.
  • It is named after Gustave Eiffel, whose company was in charge of the project.
  • The Eiffel Tower is 320 metres (1050 feet) in height and was the tallest man made structure in the world for 41 years before being surpassed by the Chrysler Building in New York.

Can you find out any more interesting facts?

We would like you to have a go at creating your own model or image of the Eiffel Tower. Here are some ideas we have created at home.

You can create your Eiffel Tower out of anything you like indoor or outdoors. Why not write a label for it and some of the interesting facts you have found too?

Please email your creations to friendsofladywood@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk as we would love to see them.

Take care from Sharon and Jenny

Au revoir, à bientôt
