22 FEBRUARY - QU-EST-CE QUE TU NE FAIS PAS?...Negatives

TASK 1: WATCH THE TWO VIDEOS

  • Today we are learning how to say what we don't do - very apt, as we can't do much at the moment.
  • What does Madame Harris normally do, and what does she do during lockdown?

Plume the cat is in Lockdown!

En Confinement (In Lockdown)

Qu'est-ce que tu ne fais pas en confinement?

TASK 2: OPEN UP THE POWERPOINT AND TEACH YOURSELF HOW TO FORM NEGATIVES

Look at how we say what we don't do in more detail. Work through the powerpoint, in your workbooks, checking your own answers.

TASK 3: To be handed in on Teams

Complete the exercises below. (Available as a worksheet if you are able to print at home)

Negative sentences

NEGATIVE SENTENCES say what you DON’T do.

In English they always include the word NOT, e.g. is not, do not, has not…

In French, you need the words NE and PAS on either side of the verb.

 

 

  1. Circle the verb in each sentence. 
  2. Make the sentences negative by adding NE and PAS on either side of the verb.

Remember, ne changes to n’ before a vowel!

  1. Je mange une pizza.              >> Je ne mange pas une pizza  
  2. Je suis petit.                     >> __________________________________      
  3. Je danse avec mon chat.         >> __________________________________
  4. Il regarde la télé.                >> __________________________________      
  5. Elle parle français.               >> __________________________________      
  6. Tu es amusant.                   >> __________________________________
  7. Je joue au golf le week-end.    >> __________________________________
  8. Nous allons à la plage.           >> __________________________________
  9. J’aime l’école.                    >> __________________________________
  10. Il est très bavard.               >> __________________________________
  11. C’est amusant.                   >> __________________________________
