La routine quotidienne

It has been a busy and creative time for LIV pupils in French, who have been persevering with the challenges of reflexive verbs and learning to describe their daily routine. As a welcome break from some difficult grammar, the girls were tasked with something a little more imaginative: writing and performing their own songs on the theme of their daily routine. Their songs had to rhyme and be written entirely in French to make the task a little more challenging. After a lively half an hour of songwriting and rehearsing in small groups, the girls were treated to several excellent performances from their peers, showcasing fantastic lyrical talent and linguistic ability.  

Each performance revealed a different approach to the task, with ballads, raps and spoken word all being performed. An eclectic variety of topics was also covered, from eating pains au chocolat to anéléphantwho had visited for breakfast. The range and complexity of rhymes were especially enjoyable to listen to and highlighted each girl’s impressive range of language. It was a pleasure to see aspects of music, poetry and drama coming alive in the language classroom and to watch the girls performing in French with so much enthusiasm and enjoyment.

The French Department hopes that some of the girls will continue to work on their pieces and enter the French Pop Video competition run by the Institut Français later this year.
