Following on from The Glorious Flight, we are continuing the French theme this week.

Our main book is Madeline by Ludwig Behelmans and we plan activities related to this.

Today. we painted some paper models from  Made by Joel. They need to dry and then be folded tomorrow.

We are rereading the Glorious Flight by Alice and Martin Provensen as we all enjoyed this first time round and it has particularly come to life, for the children, after our trip to Dover.

Mirette on the high wire by Emily Arnold McCully is a previous Five in a Row read and is also set in Paris.

I'm not sure whether this is foolhardy but I've added Les Couleurs which is a Coccinelle book. There are pictures on every page about colours. It was enjoyed this morning, after some bemusment about Mummy reading in French.

This only adds up to four this week. I did wonder about adding Babar the king by Jean de Brunhoff. It is likely that we will read it this week but it is looong and I didn't want to plan to read it every day.
Miss Belle has been wandering round saying "Bonjour". Should be an enjoyable topic!

I have linked this to 5-a-Day books at the Imagination Tree.
