Just a reminder – the idea is that the BBC provides further support to help you learn, you will still need to complete the White Rose question sheet, and as always, you can check your answers.
The Little Shoemaker- Le Petit Cordonnier
This week we are going to start by doing some work on this short film about a little shoemaker in Paris. I'd like you to watch the film below and take in everything around you- the streets, the buildings, the noises, the scenery. You could even write down some things that you see to help you.
Once you have finished watching the film, I would like you to log onto purple mash. You will have a 2do named 'Parisian streets'. I would like you to create a setting description of those streets using expanded noun phrases and ambitious vocabulary. When I read your work I would like your description to be so good that I can imagine being there.
I have added some pictures below of some streets in Lille, a place I visited in France a few years ago. Look at all the colours, cobblestone streets and buildings of all shapes and sizes. I have also added my own description below so you can magpie some of my ideas. I can't wait for your writing to take me on a journey through those Parisian streets.
Miss Rogers' example of 'A Parisian street'
Walking down the uneven, cobbled streets you will see people of all kinds. Tourists and locals alike exploring the varied, wondrous shops as the sound of Parisian music echoes down the street from the distant square. The sun is shining through the gaps in the buildings creating dappled shadows on the shop window fronts. As you walk down these streets, you get the sense that if they could talk, they would have a lot of stories to tell. Weaving like a snake, you find yourself in and out of couples and groups chatting getting bits and pieces of all conversations around you. The hustle and bustle in the morning sun of people collecting their groceries or meeting up with their friends for a coffee in the local patisserie. Shop doors of all sorts of pastel colours with colourful, welcoming window displays open up to busy, well-visited shop floors. The sounds of brass door bells ringing as visitors enter and leave these beautiful stores. The sound of chatter like birds in an aviary fill the streets from the charismatic coffee shops as baristas clear up their coffee cups and left over pastries. This Parisian street is a sight to behold and one I will never forget.
