Unit 1: Greetings & Numbers
Pupils will learn basic greetings and gain an understanding of the numbers 1-10 so they can use them in a context. They will learn how to ask and answer a range of questions about their personal information such as what their name is and where they live, in order to take part in role-playing activities and a number of games. Pupils will be encouraged to start writing and speaking consistently in full sentences.
Unit 2: Colours and Animals
Pupils will continue to practise greetings and numbers, expanding on what they learnt in the previous unit by learning numbers 10-20. Pupils will begin to learn the names of colours and the names of animals through speaking, reading and writing activities and games as well as learning how to use adjectives to describe nouns correctly. Pupils will also start to learn how to give preferences in regard to colours.
