J'aime Chanter ! is great for Early Years and Key Stage 1 French lessons!
Singing songs is a fun way of helping children to develop an enthusiasm for French. The 20 songs in J'aime Chanter ! are set to familiar tunes, such as London's Burning, Ten Green Bottles & Frère Jacques etc., so that you and the children can concentrate on the words, without having to learn new tunes.
The songs introduce and reinforce vocabulary for greetings, colours, family, clothes, food, numbers and many more frequently taught topics.
