QU'EST-CE QUE TU FAIS COMME PASSE-TEMPS?.. What are your hobbies?

TODAY we are practising using a writing frame, in order to write about our own free time.

Saying what you do in different weather

Miss Kendall practises using a writing frame!



Listen to the 4 recordings below and follow the information in the pictures, as in the  video example. If you can print it out, then feel free to draw on it, otherwise just point as you listen to the recordings!





Can you make some sentences of your own, using the pictures? You don't need to write them down, just say them out loud!

You can add extra details to your sentences to extend them!
