2019/20 – Junior Cycle – Semaine du 20 au 27 avril

Chers élèves,

“Bonne rentrée!” I hope you had a lovely Easter break. I would love to hear from you all and to know if any of you have attempted the Easter activities I posted on the website. I am therefore inviting you to join our weekly live classe via the Zoom platform. I have sent you the details (day, time and link to the meeting) via Hangouts and it is also posted in your google classroom.

So as I mentioned to your parents in an email yesterday, the work I am assigning you is to be done for the Monday of each week. I would however advise to do your assignment following your school timetable. I have therefore organised the assignment under each day of the week where you have a French class. At the moment you have the work for today and tomorrow, the rest of the week will come very soon. If this does not suit, feel free to pick another time as long as it does not interfere with your other timetabled classes and as long as the work is finished before next Monday.

Make also sure to come on Hangouts at least once every day to get up to date info about the French lessons/assignments, to ask your questions or even to just say “Bonjour!”.

I wish you all the very best for this last straight line before the Summer holidays and “A bientôt!”

Il y a trois chambres, une salle de bain, une cuisine et une salle de séjour. – My house is small/ average size / big. It is situated in the city / in the countryside / by the sea side. There are three bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen and a sitting room.

So now it’s your turn, can you create your own answers ? Go onto google classroom in the « Questions pour l’oral » assignment. This assignment contains a file with all the Oral questions we have seen so far (Question 1 to question 11). Your job (for today and to be finished by nex week) is to fill up the « Ma réponse (first draft) » column with your own answer to each question.

Si c’est trop difficile voici la transcription pour vous aider à répondre aux questions:

Tous les ans, au moment de Pâques, des œufs, des lapins et des cloches en chocolat font rêver les gourmands ! Et quand vient le weekend, la chasse aux œufs en chocolat est officiellement ouverte ! Pourtant, avant les années 1800, on ne s’offrait pas des œufs en chocolat mais de véritables œufs de poules.

Alors d’où vient cette tradition des œufs de Pâques ?Il faut savoir que l’œuf symbolise l’origine du monde, le renouveau.

Pendant l’antiquité, les Perses s’offraient des œufs de poule au printemps, pour marquer la fin de l’hiver et la renaissance de la nature.

En Europe, la fête de Pâques commémore la résurrection du Jésus Christ et la fin du Carême. Autrefois très respecté, le Carême est une période où les chrétiens se privent volontairement de certains plaisirs dont celui de manger des œufs.  Pour fêter la fin de ces privations, ils s’offraient les œufs pondus durant cette période.

Au milieu du XIXe siècle, les chocolatiers mélangent du sucre, du beurre et du chocolat en poudre, et obtiennent une pâte qu’on peut verser dans des moules. Et c’est ainsi que naît l’œuf en chocolat et plus tard, les cloches, les lapins, la friture. Selon les régions, c’est soit les Cloches, soit le Lapin de Pâques, qui déposent les œufs un peu partout dans les jardins.

Au final, peu importe qui cache les œufs, l’important c’est de se régaler !

Réponses aux questions:
  1. Fill in the blank: “Des oeufs, des lapin et des ______ en chocolat font rêver les gourmands”. cloches (bells)
  2. What were people giving each other for Easter before the 19th century? Real chicken eggs.
  3. What does the “egg” symbolise? The orgin of the world
  4. During the antiquity, which civilisation celebrated the arrival of Spring by giving each others eggs? Persians
  5. What did Christians not eat during Lent? Eggs
  6. When were chocolate eggs first created? In the middle of the 19th century
  7. In the end, what’s the most important thing? To enjoy the chocolate

Keep on practicing your Duolingo!
