On y va !
Medway
Year 6 Cross-curricular Unit
Wendy Cobb
This unit builds on vocabulary and structures covered in earlier Medway Plans. It links with Literacy Framework Non-fiction Unit 4,
QCA MFL Unit 7 On y va ! and Unit 20 Notre monde, Geography Unit 24 Passport to the World, Unit 22 A contrasting locality
overseas. Activities that deliver Framework objectives are highlighted on the following grid. All activities from the various units are
highlighted on a separate grid. Teachers are free to dip in and out of the units to develop their own plans but should check that they
cover all the year 6 objectives during the course of the year.
A suggested teaching sequence is given together with suggestions for warm-up activities and example lesson plans.
A list of useful web links is also provided together with suggestions for additional cross-curricular activities.
The unit could be covered in its simplest form in a sequence of 6 x 30/40 minute lessons or could be extended into a full creative
project. Cross-curricular links are given in the appendix.

Example Lesson Two Outline
Resources : Guide books, passports
Teaching and activities
Objectives: – Read authentic texts and listen to audio presentations to find out
information about Paris.
(Prior to the lesson explain to the children that the purpose of their visit is to find out how
a guided tour of a particular location can be presented through a variety of formats. They
will need to gather as many ideas as they can as they will be travelling to another country
later in the term and will need to create a presentation of their tour at the end of their visit.
During the journey to Paris they will be able to read guidebooks and watch virtual
presentations about Paris in order to plan a short tour of the city.)
If possible have the room ready for the ‘journey’ to Paris. Chairs seated in ‘coaches’
facing the IWB. Issue the children with tickets and have their ‘passports’ checked before
they are allowed on the train. During the ‘journey’ play the onboard information
programme (selected video and audio/visual clips) and provide a range of French leaflets
and guides about Paris. In pairs the children decide on places to visit and things to do in
Paris.

Objectives: – To understand what stereotypes children abroad might have about the
England and vice versa.
 Warm up: Get children to guess the name of the country you are going to, using clues
from the rap from lesson one, e.g. La capitale est Rome. Il y a beaucoup de
glaces…

English names for any of the countries? Talk about the difference between countries
where the official language is French and other French-speaking countries.

IU6.2 Recognise and
understand some of
the differences
between people
(explore the issue of
stereotype).
Explain to the children that you are going to show them some pictures of a Frenchspeaking country that is not in Europe. Tell them the name of the country and ask the
children to describe it. Where have they got their information from and do they all
think the statements are true?
Tell the children some interesting facts about the country and display images of a
French-speaking country on the IWB or pass round pictures.
Give out two different sets of statements from A, B, C and D to each pair of pupils.
First, ask each pupil individually to decide which country is being described on their
paper, giving reasons for their decision. They swap statements with their partner, and
come up with a suggested country and reasons for their decision for this statement.
Then they join with their partner and compare answers and reasons.
Ask pupils to share their thoughts. When each group has been heard, tell them that all
the phrases represent views of England. They came from Kenyan girls (A) and boys
(C) and Greek boys (B) and girls (D). Is anyone surprised? Why? Stick the statements
onto a chart with two columns: Those that they think do describe England, and those
that they think don't. Talk about where the views may have come from - for example,
the media, films, tourists, school textbooks.

Prior to these lessons the children will ‘fly’ to the chosen French-speaking country.
As part of a wider cross-curricular plan they will compare similarities and
differences between the culture of the country and the UK, compare attitudes
towards aspects of everyday life and plan a presentation for the final week of the
project.
IU6.1 Compare attitudes
towards aspects of
everyday life.
The direction of the research will depend on the interests and needs of the class.
IU6.2 Recognise and

WEATHER: Revise weather words and phrases, read a passage about the
weather in Senegal, answer questions, present a weather report (L6.1, O6.2,
L6.2, IU6.1). Consider, why do British people always talk about the weather?
ANIMALS:http://www.salysenegal.net/photos/animaux/animaux.htm Use this
site to research animals native to Senegal. Then search for French stories,
songs and rhymes about the animals. Learn and perform in a variety of ways
(O6.2, O6.4, L6.1, L6.2).
FOOD: Revise food words and phrases. Research Senegalese food. Read a
recipe Recette du yassa au poulet. Teacher reads out the recipe and the
children use picture cards and actions to illustrate the meaning. Children sort
instructions into correct order. Compare attitudes to food and cooking in both
countries (06.3, L6.2, L6.3, IU6.1).
SPORT: Revise sport words and phrases. Research sport in Senegal.

gros and the smallest le plus petit in each ‘family’. Ask them to give each
instrument in the family a name of a relative, e.g. le grand-père, le bébé (link
