Today we are going to think about how to say the colours of the rainbow in French.
There are two videos for you to watch today.
This first one teaches you the names of the colours, and asks you to say the words out loud. Don’t worry if it is tricky for you, just have a go.
In the second video, A lady called Alexa sings the rainbow song in French.
If you have a tablet, you might want to download the free app called Fun French, which has some great games to help you learn colours
