Primary French – La Parade des Metiers D’avant

Make KS2 French fun with carnival celebrations in Martinique During the carnival celebrations at École Plateau Didier, pupils take part in a parade of traditional island occupations. Presented by Mathis, the ‘newspaper seller’, this clip also features short interviews with pupils dressed up as a cane cutter, an ironing lady and a milk seller, talking about the clothes they’re wearing and the roles they represent.

This lesson starter relates to the language and themes explored in Units 17 and 22 of the QCDA scheme of work for KS2 French.

Shot on location in Fort de France, Martinique, the video offers opportunities to develop language skills and intercultural understanding.

There are detailed accompanying teaching notes.
