Other Learning


Bonjour, in today's work we are working in French. You will be using this online dictionary ( Click here for French to English Dictionary ) or an English to French dictionary if you have one at hand. When you have this, look round your house with this activity sheet ( Download Activity Sheet What Is In My House ), choose the sheet that will challenge you.

Once you have done this, your aim is to name things you may find in each room then find the translation for it in your French dictionary and record it. Don’t forget to include le or la depending on whether the word is masculine or feminine.

After this, here are some ideas to continue your learning:

  • Draw and label your room in French.
  • Start and make your own French Dictionary using a spare note pad or making your own booklet.
  • Research what life is like for a child in a typical French household; in what ways is it similar to your life, in what ways is it different?




With anxiety over health, social distancing and changes in routine, this is a difficult time for children and adults. Here are some suggestions to help your wellbeing and mental health. This week, the activities focus on mindfulness.





Mindfulness is being aware of what is going on inside and outside ourselves, moment by moment. We can practise mindfulness through meditation, colouring, poses, being in nature and much more. Here are some fun activities to get you going. Look out for mindfulness colouring, crafts, breathing and yoga activities here over the next few days.

  Mindfulness challenges:

Try these different challenges to help you really focus on the present and take your mind off your daily thoughts or worries. How do they make you feel? Try to notice if you feel calmer or more relaxed. Do them every time you feel a bit stressed, annoyed or worried, whether that’s with stress over your home learning, worries over Covid-19 or annoyance with family members. They really will help!

  Mindful brain breaks:

If you find it hard to keep working while you’re at home, make sure to take a break every 10 minutes or so. Try these short brain breaks with your sibling(s) or parent(s). They are fun to do and will help your brain to be ready to learn. They aid concentration and take the stress out of lesson time and, done regularly, will turn you into a learning machine!
