Spring Term

Quel est ton style de musique préféré ?

This half term, in Purple Class, we are embarking on an engaging exploration of Music in France. Through this unit, the children will delve into diverse musical styles and immerse themselves in the sounds of various French songs. This unit not only enhances our cultural capital but also provides valuable insights into French culture. It's worth noting a unique aspect of French culture - a law mandates that 40 % of the music played on the radio in France must be French, 20 % of which must be recent, promoting both language and culture. Purple Class will gain a richer understanding of France and its culture. At the end of this unit, the children should be able to express their opinion about different styles which is a skill that will help them as they go to secondary school. 


Here's a playlist of the different songs we've listened to so far: 


Dans mon Paris - Zaz

Clair de lune - Debussy 

Ton combat - Arcadian

Petit Pays - Hocus Pocus 

Papaoutai - Stromae

Sunset Lover - Petit Biscuit

L'hymne de nos campagnes - Tryo

La vie en rose - Edith Piaf

Dis-moi - BB Brunes 

Le tigre de Django - Marion and Sobo Band

Fantaisie Impromptu - Chopin

Femme libérée - Cookie Dingler

Ça ira - Joyce Jonathan 

La mer - Charles Trenet


Enjoy! smiley

Today we listened to the following songs:


Bruxelles je t'aime - Angèle

Bella - Gims

Monde de fous - Danakil

J'ai deux amours - Josephine Baker

Le cygne - Camille Saint-Saëns


We used our sentence builder to talk about our music taste. Purple Class were amazing at translating the sentences as I gradually remove the support from the screen! Super !

Here are the songs we listened to today:


Édith Piaf - Non je ne regrette rien

Soprano - Mon précieux

M. Pokora - À nos actes manqués

Pomme - Pauline


The children already knew the song by Édith Piaf because it is in lots of adverts and films. They particularly liked the song by M. Pokora today smiley 


Some children said that Angèle was the French Taylor Swift! I liked the comparison and see why they'd think that. Angèle is very popular among young people in France. She's actually from Belgium and she sings about her country in her song Bruxelles je t'aime and how she missed it when she moved to Paris.
