DD has come home today with a song she has been learning that is in French! She doesn't know it all but was singing some of it in the car and I'm now feeling really rather uneducated as I don't understand it blush

It's called Jean Petit qui danse if anyone knows it!

I'm about to look at an online dictionary to find out what the words are blush

Please tell me I'm not the only one!!!

Feeling even more stupid now as just found the words and feel I should probably have known!!!
Oh well!

I feel like that with grammar. I really appreciated helping in dds class last year because her teacher was fab at explaining it to me the class.

Wait till you see how they do maths as they go through the key stages, we had to have lessons at school so we could support our children.

My DS (just turned 3) has started to learn French at nursery! He came home the other day talking about Hugo Escargot (who is apparently a talking snail) and told me I wasn't pronouncing it properly!

It will be very useful if you go to France on holiday! My DSs can ask for baguettes and say Bonjour and Au Revoir...roll on year 1 lessons grin. I will put my feet up and shut up!

LOL! Yes, she will be fine when we go to France and needs to tell them parts of her body!! It's quite sweet really and she now has me singing it after we found singing version of it on the internet!!
