The children will be practicing their 1:1 correspondence as you listen to the song and touch their fingers at the same time. We want them to be experience the french counting but also practice a skill relevant to their level of ability.  Hopefully, they will show an interest and enjoy the French-speaking just like they have with our Welsh and Italian songs.

Iris in Symmetry

The Iris is the french national flower. Why not have a go at this symmetry Iris art!



Collect together any objects that are red, green and white. They are the colours of the Italian flag. If you have bowls or plates in those colours that's great if not you could use coloured pieces of paper/card or cloth. Have fun sorting your coloured objects on the right plates. And don't forget to count them at the end of sorting them.

Let's Count

Use old used tins, washed, clean, and dried with no sharp edges on and create an animal head. Attach to the top with whatever glue or tape you have available. I recommend using larger pasta, either twists or shells to feed the animals, as they will be easier for your child to hold, with help.


Intentional exploration 

During the story 'Dear Zoo,' there are opportunities for the children, to 'intentionally, explore' the animals. Support and encourage them, giving them time, and helping them, to touch and feel. Describe the animal also, using simple language.

 Let's Count!! 

Children need lots of opportunities in, everyday activities, to develop 1:1 correspondence, and, with support, to practice counting. At school, we overemphasize the 1:1 correspondence and when counting, touch the children on the heads, with big movements. This allows and helps them to anticipate the touch on the head, and also the 1:1 correspondence.


The children are familiar with these number songs, and with support can practice 1:1 correspondence, while having fun listening and participating with a song.Here are some of their favourites.
