Theme 4

Theme 4: August to October

The main focus in this theme is on health and wellbeing. With this in mind, the following areas are studied in detail:

  • The face and body
  • Saying what’s wrong with you at the doctor’s
  • Taking advice from the doctor
  • Describing ways to stay fit and healthy
  • Smoking, alcohol and drugs
  • Food and drink

A great deal of grammar is also taught within this theme, enabling pupils to use possessive adjectives, imperatives and modal verbs confidently in French.

At the end of this theme, pupils complete a transactional talking assessment in which they are required to play the part of a customer buying fruit and vegetables from a market in France or in a French-speaking country.
