Teaching children how to ask for directions can be a lot of fun as it involves looking at life outside the classroom. There are lots of cognates in the French words for buildings so they shouldn’t pose too much of a challenge, but it’s worth emphasising the pronunciation to discourage children from anglicising them.
This download contains:
- French place names PowerPoint (including cafe, museum, supermarket, train station, church, bridge, castle, library, swimming pool and stadium)
- Town map to use when teaching directions
These resources can be used to accompany this KS2 lesson plan on Directions in French.
