Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Primary 6 have been learning to sing Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes in French to help them remember the parts of the body.

We’ve discovered lots of different versions, but this is one that we’ve been singing in class.

Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (in French!)
Tête, épaules et genoux, pieds, genoux, pieds
Tête, épaules et genoux, pieds, genoux, pieds
J’ai des yeux, des oreilles, une bouche et un nez
Tête, épaules et genoux, pieds, genoux, pieds

The French Immersion

A lady from France came into our class to teach us some more about our French, her name was Mariam . She spent an hour with us talking French! She taught us more about or colours and we all got fake french names to learn. We had to walk around the class, meet people and have a conversation in french(including our fake french name and age.)

We also learnt about France and she said if someone draws France quickly it is the shape of a hexagon (if you draw it on paper.) It was really interesting and I didn’t realise I knew so much french!
